But when we go online, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), like Comcast and Verizon, have access to ALL of our unencrypted activity online – everything from the websites we visit, the apps we use, our physical locations, and who we communicate with online.
Unbelievably, even with such special access to our online lives, there still aren’t formal rules regulating how ISPs get to use or share our information – even though they often do so without our knowledge or consent!
Last month, the FCC released proposed rules that will protect consumer privacy and give Internet customers control over how their data is used.
The FCC is in a 30-day public comment period RIGHT NOW and if we mobilize enough support we can make it so consumers are in the driver’s seat when it comes to how ISPs get to share our information.
Tell the FCC: ISPs should safeguard data, not sell it without permission. Give consumers control over how their information is used and shared!
