Internet users in the US may soon find their internet browsing history being sold for ‘marketing purposes’.
President Trump is soon expected to sign an order that repeals a law that stated ISPs (Internet Service Providers) must first have your permission before sharing your browsing history, including location data. The major ISPs in the US support this move arguing they are subject to stricter controls than the likes of social media giants like Facebook. Other supporters of the change claim it will increase competition.
Not surprisingly, privacy campaigners are not happy. What would you do if you learned your internet browsing history was sold to the highest bidder?
