Carrier IQ CEO Larry Lenhart has quite a few questions to answer, for good reason. Today, Senator Al Franken sent him a letter in concern for the millions of american who could be at risk due to his company’s actions.

The letter reads:

“The revelation that the locations and other sensitive data of millions of Americans are being secretly recorded and possibly transmitted is deeply troubling. This news underscores the need for Congress to act swiftly to protect the location information and private, sensitive information of consumers. But right now, Carrier IQ has a lot of questions to answer.”
