The FCC is nailing carriers for leaking location data.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the FCC is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in fines from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.


The fines stem from carriers' failure to prevent unauthorized third parties from accessing real-time location data, even after they told Congress they would. The FCC did not offer any of the carriers a settlement, though the fines are still pending and can be challenged.
