Palm criticised over Pre privacy

Palm has been criticised for sending data back to their server without the user's knowledge, however they have responded to their claims.

Palm has responded to claims that its recently-launched Pre smartphone abuses owners' privacy.

The company issued a statement after one owner discovered his phone was sending data every day back to Palm.

The information included the current location of the phone and how long each application was used for.

In its statement, Palm said it took users' privacy "seriously" and said it gave phone owners ways to turn features on and off.


I'm not sure if this is good enough or not. But what I hate is when companies does this without informing the users. It also made you wonder what they would want to do with these information they collected. At least they allows users to turn it off.
