"We are accustomed to living in a society where our movements are not tracked from place to place, and it's a big shift to have that happen," said Jennifer Lynch, staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that works to protect digital rights and privacy.

"There's so much data about us in different places that it's absolutely impossible to keep track of it or to delete it. ...
