Mobile line ... consented to share phone location & other device data with 3rd parties!?
Earlier tonight I received the same text message 5 times over a half an hour:
From text# 28891323:
"AT&T Free Message: Notice: Mobile line ---------- on your account has consented to share phone location or other subscriber, account, and device data with third parties. Please do not reply to this text. Thank you for choosing AT&T."
1. Is this a real communication from AT&T to me? Seems very odd given yesterday's news articles stating AT&T plans to stop selling customer location data soon.
2. Did I ever give explicit consent to AT&T allowing them to share my phone location & device data with their 3rd parties? I suppose I could have when I signed an AT&T contract.
3. Can I opt out? Immediately? What's my best plan of action to opt out ASAP? (Other than going completely off grid.)
