Big changes are underway for the World Wide Web.

 

President Donald Trump is tossing out internet privacy protections passed by President Obama.

 

On Monday, Trump signed a resolution that would repeal the rules that required internet service providers to get their clients’ permission prior to collecting or sharing their data, such as browsing history, app usage, and geolocation.

 

Democrats and privacy advocates claim personal information will now go to the highest bidder.
