Yes, that is EVERY web user. Not just the ones in the U.K., not just those in Europe, but EVERONE who has used the Internet. That includes YOU.
New documents revealing GCHQ’s mass-surveillance activities have detailed an operation codenamed KARMA POLICE, which slurped up the details of “every visible user on the Internet”.
The operation was launched in 2009, without Parliamentary consultation or public scrutiny, to record the browsing habits of “every visible user on the Internet” without the agency obtaining legal permission to do so, according to documents published by The Intercept.
