Spring Privacy Series: Mobile Device Tracking. This is the first seminar in the FTC’s spring privacy series that will focus on retailers and other businesses use of programs tracking consumers’ movements throughout and around retail stores and other attractions using technologies that identify signals emitted by their mobile devices. While the technologies differ, many work by identifying and collecting the MAC address – which is unique to a particular device – broadcast when a mobile device searches for Wi-Fi networks.
