  • Life360 — which owns the family-tracking app of the same name and will soon own Tile — sells a ton of user data.
  • A new report suggests the company allegedly plays fast and loose with that data.
  • The company has no plans to sell Tile user data, but its family-tracking app bears no such promise.

At this point, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that a company is making money off your data. That’s just the world we live in. What matters most now is how precise that sold data is and who is buying it.

According to a new report from The Markup, the company known as Life360 is allegedly playing fast and loose with its user data. This is particularly alarming when you realize Life360 also owns a family-tracking app of the same name with over 33 million users. The company is also the future owner of Tile, the popular brand of GPS trackers.
