>> President Trump signing a repeal of Obama-era broadband privacy rules late Monday. The new bill allows Internet service providers to sell users' data and browsing histories, a victory for for ISPs, a major blow to privacy advocates. The bill repeals regulations adopted in October by the Federal Communications Commission under Obama requiring Internet service providers to do more to protect consumers' privacy than websites like Google or Facebook.
Rules had not yet taken effect but would have required Internet providers to obtain consumer consent before using precise geolocation, financial, and health information and web browsing history for advertising and marketing. The easing of restrictions has sparked growing anger on social media, but Comcast, Verizon and AT&T vowing not to sell user data.
Last week, 46 Senate Democrats urged Trump not to sign the bill arguing most Americans, "believe that their private information should be just that".>>
