Forbes: Exclusive: Feds Order Apple And Google To Hand Over Names Of 10,000+ Users Of A Gun Scope App.

Own a rifle? Got a scope to go with it? The government might soon know who you are, where you live and how to reach you.

That’s because Apple and Google have been ordered by the U.S. government to hand over names, phone numbers and other identifying data of at least 10,000 users of a single gun scope app, Forbes has discovered. It’s an unprecedented move: Never before has a case been disclosed in which American investigators demanded personal data of users of a single app from Apple and Google. And never has an order been made public where the feds have asked the Silicon Valley giants for info on so many thousands of people in one go.

I'm expecting both Apple & Google will resist, at least for a while. Remains to be seen whether either eventually caves.

Wonder if the app can be side loaded?

I own an ATN scope and have the obsidian app for coyotes. Wonder when they will come knocking in the middle of the night.
This might not end well.

Best to watch this closely, it could have huge implications

Sounds like Ilhan Omar (or a reasonable facsimile) bought an ATN scope, and exported it to her friends in the PA (not Palestine, no such place), in violation of ITAR. Now ICE is trying to track her down.
