Lyft, the company that provides smartphones, has announced it will sell phone numbers for customers on its website.
The company will use the numbers for a variety of purposes including billing and for marketing purposes, the statement said.
The announcement comes less than a month after a federal judge in Texas ruled that Lyft was violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by charging customers extra fees for using their phones.
The lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and Consumers Union of Texas.
In the ruling, Judge Robert Hinkle wrote that Lyfts phone numbers were a “commercial nuisance.”
The company said it would appeal the ruling.
The ACLU and Consumers Alliance of Texas filed a similar lawsuit in federal court in Houston earlier this month, claiming that LyFT violated the Telephone Act and other consumer protection laws.
Lyft is the latest tech company to jump into the phone game.
In September, Facebook said it will allow customers to sell phone information on its site.
Snapchat also announced it was selling phone information.
