On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee’s privacy subpanel announced an upcoming hearing on May 10 which will focus on mobile privacy issues. Subpanel Chairman Al Franken (D-Minn.) said the hearing will "serve as a first step in investigating if Federal law protecting consumer privacy –particularly when it relates to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets –is keeping pace with advances in technology." Executives from Apple and Google both accepted invitations from the Senator to testify at the hearing alongside representatives from the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.

The Senate Commerce Committee will also be holding a mobile privacy hearing in May, Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) announced on Thursday. The announcement follows recent concerns that iPhones track and store a user’s personal information and whereabouts.
