A NEW ERA FOR MOBILE LOCATION?

The passing of another year has brought a continued, and renewed, emphasis on the protection of mobile privacy and how personal information is being treated. More so than years past, mobile location has become a key aspect of 2019’s privacy debate discourse. 

As the data throughout this report will show, the privacy component of mobile location is not a clear-cut issue. There are app experiences for which Americans value the use of geolocation, there are different ways of asking users to share their location and different measures to put in place in return.

In short, there is a way for mobile apps to collect mobile location that is in complete harmony with the privacy by design age.
