NSA collects data 'revealing location of five billion mobile phones every day'

NSA collects data 'revealing location of five billion mobile phones every day' | Privacy | Scoop.it

Almost five billion records revealing the location of mobile phones around the world are collected by the US National Security Agency every day.

Data collected by the NSA provides the US with the ability to pinpoint hundreds of millions of phones and their users daily, it was reported.

Moreover, the records allow US intelligence agents to establish not just the movements of individuals but to monitor who else they communicate with.

The scale of the monitoring project was revealed by officials speaking to theWashington Post, combined with documents made public by Edward Snowden, who worked for the National Security Agency before he leaked the secret files.

“We are getting vast volumes,” an unnamed official told the newspaper, by tapping into cables that connect mobile networks.
