Internet privacy repeal headed to Oval Office
The measures would remove FCC rules enacted previous year that required Internet service providers, or ISPs, such as Comcast (CMCSA), Charter (CHTR), AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) to follow new rules to protect consumers' privacy. On Wednesday, the White House said President Trump plans to sign the bill.
The privacy protections were approved by the Federal Communications Commission in the final days of the Obama administration and had not yet gone into effect.
The future of online privacy is now in President Trump's hands.
The canceled rule had set out to give more control to users over their online privacy, making sure that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) would have to inform their users prior to sharing and collecting your online data about your behavior on Internet.

Axelrod: Trump's Susan Rice allegation 'beneath the dignity of that office'
Trump's comments also pointed to a larger conspiracy, that would include other Obama Administration officials. Rice's official role would have given her the ability to make those requests for national security purposes.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the repeal ensures Internet service providers are treated the same as online businesses like Facebook and Google, which are not required to receive permission from users. Institutions should take care to reinforce privacy best practices with students and staff, including using VPNs, encrypted browsers, and clearing app and browsing history on all devices often.
The rule was voted down 215-205 in the Congress, while the Senate had already voted to block it.
Democrats and privacy advocates have argued this approach effectively hands over the customer's personal information to the highest bidder.
"Consumers still have protections". "I don't want anyone to take my information and sell it to someone and make a ton of money off of it just because they can get their mitts on it". "Why should you know what size I take, or the color, or any of that information?" Lobbyists for the ISPs have quarreled that the FCC laws went in opposition to aggressive impartiality (the similar law do not apply to Facebook and Google). But with the regulations made invalid, internet service providers can sell the information-unless you opt out. Republicans and industry groups have blasted that discrepancy, saying it was unfair and confusing for consumers.
