Submission + - Apple Hit With Class Action Suit Over Tracking ( 1

RedEaredSlider writes: Apple is facing a class action suit over the location data that two security researchers recently publicized.

The two named plaintiffs are Vikram Ajjampur and William Devito. They filed their suit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida in Tampa, Fla. Ajjampur lives in Florida, Devito in New York State.

The lawsuit says that because the location data — whatever its quality — is being gathered without consent Apple is violating the privacy of users in violation of the law. In California, for example, it is illegal to track a person's location without their knowledge.
