This week , the companies Apple and Google have been heard by members of the U.S. Senate on the GPS system (location tracker) built into their phones. They have struggled to justify their position and presence of files recording the position of users in the phone. The European Union has also decided to look into this matter by issuing some recommendations aimed at manufacturers of phones and smartphones in particular.
The Commission is also working on a new section that would require manufacturers to seek approval from the user for the use of location data.
The latter being regarded as information relating to privacy, they should not be linked to the user and should be deleted after a short period. These recommendations could soon become mandatory for selling a smartphone in the European Union.
