Safe Data – level 1

05-03-2020 07:00

The four biggest wireless network companies in the US have a problem. They do not keep people’s data safe. They give information about people’s real-time locations to other people. People do not know about it.

In the past, a special group warns the companies. The companies must protect people’s data better. However, it does not happen.

Now, the companies must pay a lot of money. The company T-Mobile must pay more than $91 million dollars.

Some officials are not happy with the group. They say that the group is slow. They say that people’s data must be safe.

Difficult words: wireless network company (a company that runs systems that do not use cables), real-time location (where something or somebody is in real time), protect (to keep safe).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
