By now it is likely that you have read about the Internet privacy bill that Donald Trump just signed into law. Despite Obama signing a bill later into his term to curb Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) from collecting your data, this policy has not actually gone into effect. In essence, nothing is actually changing.
But now, Congress and the Executive branch have allowed the practice of data collection from ISP’s to continue. Think of it this way. You don’t pay Google or Facebook any money. You use their product and in exchange we agree they advertise to you. Can you say that about your ISP, who will now sell your information on to other advertising agencies?
