US law enforcement agencies have partnered with a company that gives it the ability to track mobile location data without ever having to secure a warrant.

According to a report from Protocol, federal law enforcement in the US have signed a contract to use a tool called Locate X, made by the company Babel Street, that allows one to track the prior and future travels of mobile devices that pass through specific geographic areas.

Specifically, Locate X allows users to ‘geo-fence’ an area, meaning they’re able to set up geographical parameters in which any passing device’s location data can be hoovered up.

This allows the wielder to see where a device has been and also where it travels to after being picked up by Locate X.

Protocol reports that the tool can see user data going back months and gleans all of its information – the same data used by popular cell phone apps for targeted ads – anonymously.

Among the agencies reportedly in contract to use the tool are U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to federal records obtained by Protocol.
