Hi! I found this article on the website of Here.
What is curious about it:
- Your location data can be successfully used to identify a person.
- Our cell phone modem shares our location with the provider frequently and thus leaks our location data.
So if you consider 1+2, then Graphene OS, Lineage OS and Sailfish OS are still not protected against such indentification.
Librem 5 with a HW kill switch that you carry in offline mode and use LTE/WiFi only for seldom brief moments would be definitely superior as you have the modem component of the hardware under much better control than for example Graphene OS which still uses mysterious Google LTE modem deeply integrated in the SoC.
Ok, we still have the question - when is this applicable if in most cases our providers knows our identity anyways. And if the location data of the provider leaks somehow to third parties. So maybe the use case is very very limited to countries where you still have anonymous SIM cards.
