    House Republicans Vote To Let Your Internet Service Provider Share Your Web History
    The change could also expose your Social Security number and information pertaining to your children and health.


    WASHINGTON ― House Republicans jammed through a measure on Tuesday overturning the Obama administration’s rules that would have banned telecom and cable companies from sharing customers’ personal information, including web browsing history, without their consent.

    The House resolution passed 215-205, mostly on party lines. Its companion passed the Senate last week on a 50-48 vote. If President Donald Trump signs the measure into law, internet service providers will win a regulatory victory. But advocates say consumers can kiss network privacy goodbye.

    “ISPs will be able to sell your personal information to the highest bidder ... and they won’t have any real obligation to keep your personal information secure, either,” Gigi Sohn, who previously served as counselor to former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler, said Monday.




    THANKS A LOT!

    Now they'll be able to check up on disability fraudsters.
    Who cares? If you're any enemy of the dark side the NSA will leak it like they did to Flynn.

    By the way I usually get at least one robo call a day.
    I hate that they get away with annoying me like that, most cold sales calls went to a machine now.

    Why would you give your social security number on an online purchase anyway? I don't even use my bank card for online purchases. I use a prepaid debit card.

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    As Rastus said, who cares?

    You retain the right to not put information out there that you probably shouldn't in the first place......it really should be a non-issue....

    Exactly. I can't think of a scenario that would warrant you to put your SSN on the internet when buying something.

    No I would not but there are so many services that seem to demand it. Like your Internet service provider, I bet they have your SS number you just forgot you gave it to them. Do any dealings with your doctors online? They have it. Why do they have it and why do they ask for it?
    Probably to check your credit and to sue you easier if you don't pay them

    Places like Amazon don't ask for your SS to buy something but your credit card company knows it.

    This bill went the wrong way for our privacy, I'm sure they can spin a compelling story for you to justify the vote.
    I don't believe it.

    :hilarious: :hilarious: They are worried about securing people's Social Security numbers but these same people tell us it's not really a crime when an illegal alien ILLEGALLY buys and uses someone's number because they can't get one legally.
