Tuesday 23 July 2019 | 20:12 CET | News
New York City is introducing a bill that makes it illegal for mobile phone companies and mobile app developers to sell location data gathered while a customer's mobile device is within NY's five boroughs to marketers and other businesses, according to The New York Times. The bill is introduced by councilman Justin L. Brannan, a Brooklyn Democrat. If passed, the city would become the first to ban the sale of geolocation data to third parties.
