California: Restore Our Online Privacy Rights

Internet users are already at the mercy of ISPs, like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon. These companies have more power than ever to track and sell information about what you do online.

California: tell your representatives to support A.B. 375 (Chau) to protect consumers from privacy invasions by their ISPs.

Despite the outcry from privacy advocates and everyday Internet users, Congress narrowly voted earlier this year to repeal federal online privacy rules that kept ISPs from selling information about what you do online without your permission. Those rules, which were set to go into effect this year, codified and expanded on existing online privacy rights.

Because of the way Congress repealed those rules—using a Congressional Review Act resolution—the FCC can’t put similar privacy protections in place going forward. And the current legal landscape around ISPs means that potentially no other federal agency can police ISPs’ bad behavior when it comes to online privacy.

That’s why state legislators are taking up the charge. California is the 19th state to consider a measure to protect residents’ privacy from ISPs.

Tell your state representatives to support A.B. 375 and restore our Internet privacy protections.
