Location information

Apparently, if you’re on Verizon, 75 companies know where your phone is.  Is that worth anything to anybody?  Who owns that information and who can sell/rent it?

“Third Parties Know Exactly Where You Are,” The Wall Street Journal, July 16, 2018 B4.

Well, I like to have Uber and Google Maps know where I am.  And FindMyPhone.  Who else?  Do I control that?
