FCC fines wireless carriers $200 million for sharing user location data!

Tom and Kevin from Shared Security discuss two major cybersecurity and privacy news stories.

The first topic covers the FCC issuing fines to major US wireless carriers for sharing users’ real-time location data, totaling nearly $200 million. They express surprise and skepticism over the carriers’ actions and deliberate on whether the fines would be impactful or merely seen as the cost of doing business. The second topic revolves around Google’s announcement that it prevented 2.28 million malicious apps from reaching the Play Store in 2023, marking a significant effort towards enhancing platform security. The discussion includes insights on the effectiveness of Google’s policies, the potential need for more transparency, and the broader implications of policy enforcement in the tech industry.
