Verizon, which is US biggest mobile provider, secretly inserted tracking cookies into the Web traffic of 100 million customers. The company is accused of violating consumers’ privacy by using identifying letters and numbers from each site visited on mobile devices. “This whole supercookie business raises the specter of corporations being able to peek into the habits of Americans without their knowledge or consent,” said Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, the top Democrat on the Senate Commerce Committee.
