Over a dozen lawmakers, including Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, wrote to military and intelligence heads seeking answers on the collection of location data from Muslim-focused apps.
Predicio is linked to a supply chain of data involving Venntel, which sells location data to ICE. Google's move comes after a Motherboard investigation.
Five more apps, including Qibla Compass, which has over 5 million downloads, had a relationship with X-Mode according to technical tests.
X-Mode collected data from Muslim Pro and other apps.
Salaat First has more than ten million downloads and sold location data to Predicio, which is linked to a U.S. contractor which works with ICE.
The move comes after Motherboard’s investigation into how X-Mode gathered data from a hugely popular Muslim app.
A Muslim prayer app with over 98 million downloads is one of the apps connected to a wide-ranging supply chain that sends ordinary people's personal data to brokers, contractors, and the military.
