Recently, the FCC released a request for public comment on the privacy and data security of personal information on mobile devices. The request focuses on the amount and types of consumer information that may be collected by carriers. For example, the FCC lists a series of factors, including (i) the degree of control that the service provider exercises over the design, integration, installation, or use of the software that collects and stores information, (ii) the manner in which the collected information is used, and (iii) the role of third parties in collecting and storing data, and asks which, if any, are relevant to assessing a wireless provider’s obligations under the Communications Act and the Commission’s implementing rules. The FCC will accept public comments for 30 days from publication of the request in the Federal Register. In 2007, the FCC similarly solicited comments and revised its rules under the Communications Act to tighten data security requirements and address pretexting.
