There are recent news reports about a company called Carrier IQ which has an application installed on millions of smartphones, including some Androids. Concerns exist that Carrier IQ’s application may be obtaining and transmitting phone users’ information without their knowledge.

My law firm handles individual rights matters, and I have been investigating the Carrier IQ situation.

If you have an Android phone and want to detect whether it has the Carrier IQ application installed on it, you can download this application called Carrier IQ Detector to do so.

If you have Carrier IQ installed on your smartphone and you have questions about your legal rights, please feel free to contact me at mbrown@dvglawpartner.com.
