Verizon spying on its customers may seem bad for business, but according to the telecom giant’s latest privacy policy update, that’s exactly what they will be doing. Verizon wireless recently revealed that its new privacy agreement will allow them to spy on its user’s web habits, including the websites you visit, the location data of your phone and where you use the browser.

While the Verizon spying is supposed to be used only for commercial purposes, the whole thing seems very big brother-ish. Verizon says the purpose is to present users with more relevant ads, but the agreement says the data can be shared with third-party companies.

“A local restaurant may want to advertise only to people who live within 10 miles, and we might help deliver that ad on a website without sharing information that identifies you personally,” Verizon Wireless said, according to BGR.com.
