There has been so much about our right to privacy on the internet and now it will be a thing of the past.
Pres. Trump has made it official……YOU NO longer have a right to privacy on the internet.
– In a move the ACLU has decried as putting “profits over privacy,” President Trump on Monday signed a repeal of former President Obama’s internet privacy rules, removing obstacles for internet service providers who wish to cull web browsing histories or other information from consumers, the AP and Reuters report. It was widely expected Trump would approve the pullback measure, which passed both the House and Senate last month. The repeal nixes an FCC regulation that would have forced ISPs to get consumers’ OK before using specific data for marketing purposes. Repeal supporters say the regulation held back innovation and was unfair to ISPs, considering internet companies like Google don’t have to ask consumers for permission before gathering similar data. Supporters also want oversight of internet privacy practices moved from the FCC to the Federal Trade Commission.
Elections have consequences….

Have a good evening…….
