AT&T stops adding Web tracking codes on cellphones

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 07:35

FILE - In this Dec. 14, 2011 file photo, a hands-free device to talk on a cellphone while driving is seen in San Diego. The nation's second-largest cellular provider, AT&T Mobility, said Friday it would no longer add tracking codes to its subscribers' devices. That practice made it nearly impossible to keep a user's identity private on the Internet. The change by AT&T essentially removes a long string of hidden letters and numbers _ specific to a user's smartphone _ that was passed along to websites. While the code doesn't explicitly contain personally identifying information like a name or phone number, it nonetheless can be used to track a user's behavior across the Internet _ a lucrative data-mining opportunity for advertisers that could still reveal him or her based on browsing habits.

The practice made it nearly impossible to shield its subscribers' identities online.
