Today, U.S. Sens. Al Franken (D-Minn.), chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law, and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) introduced legislation that would require companies like Apple and Google as well as app developers to receive express consent from users of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets before sharing information about those users' location with third parties.
