    Verizon Wireless announced it will begin putting stickers on its products to warn customers that the phone tracks its owner’s geographical location.

    “This device is capable of determining its (and your) physical, geographical location and can associate this location data with other customer information. To limit access to location information by others, refer to the User Guide for Location settings and be cautious when downloading, accessing or using applications and services,” the sticker warns, according to*CNN.

    The announcement comes after it was revealed that that Apple’s iPhone keeps a record of every place its owner travels that gets downloaded every time the device syncs with a PC or Mac. The record includes latitude, longitude, a time stamp, and the IP address for the wireless network the phone was currently accessing.

    Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA)*have sent letters to Apple CEO Steve Jobsdemanding to know why Apple’s products are keeping a log of every place the owner goes.

    Apple and Google were scolded by US politicians on Tuesday over their privacy policies relating to mobile phone use, as the fallout from the revelation that iPhones and Android devices collect data for location sensing continued.

    “I believe that consumers have a fundamental right to know what data is being collected about them,” said the Democratic senator Al Franken from Minnesota at a hearing of the new senate judiciary subcommittee on privacy, technology and the law. “I also believe that they have a right to decide whether they want to share that information, and with whom they want to share it and when.”

    Franken, chairman of the subcommittee, added: “I have serious doubts about whether those rights are being respected in law or in practice.”

    The Apple software chief, Guy “Bud” Tribble, said the company is committed to user privacy. “Apple does not track users’ locations,” he said. “Apple has never done so and has no plans to ever do so.” But he added that the company’s privacy policy says that Apple “may collect, use and share precise location data.” Tribble wouldn’t answer questions after the hearing about the apparent discrepancy.
