FBI Expands Ability to Collect Cellphone Location Data, Monitor Social Media, Recent Contracts Show | Intercept

Reader comment #1: "You’ve been warned and you still carry a smartphone?"

Reader comment #2: "Don’t forget most newer cars have a cell modem in the head units these days that can not be turned off. They use it for things like onstar, traffic update features in gps, and over the air firmware updates. Plus your car has a built in microphone for hands free. Hack the head unit, endless undetectable wiretap in your private space. Just the cell tower connection logs from the modem tracks all movements and business records don’t require individual warrants. Dealers won’t tell you where the modem is or How to remove it. The ones I have hunted down can still be unplugged physically in the head units but it’s unacceptable."

If cars could be tracked like this wouldn't car theft be history?

I would have thought that this would be something insurance companies would be interested in.
