Law enforcement in Australia obtains data about subscribers, their actions and destination from cell towers.
Law enforcement agencies force telephone providers to accumulate personal information on all the subscribers without exception. It means that firms can use technology, called "tower dump".
It allows federal law enforcement agencies to receive information about any personality within 1-2 hours, her actions and location from any phone, which is connected to certain telephone towers.
Mobile providers and telephone towers are under the influence of "tower dump". Earlier the "tower dump" technology was used to trace especially dangerous criminals, but now it is used against people who aren't guilty. Besides, this technology is illegal.
Cell phone providers didn’t comment on situation.
