EFF calls for action in U.S. over FCC privacy rules potential repeal

After the Senate lawmakers voted on Thursday to repeal a set of rules aimed at protecting consumers’ online data and prohibit providers from abusing the data they gather from their costumers, on Tuesday the House of Representatives will vote. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) stresses the five ways privacy and security in the U.S. will be put at risk if repealing of the FCC’s privacy rules occurs. In addition, the FCC set up the 24-hour form for U.S. citizens, to call for lawmakers to protect federal online privacy rules.
