Trump Administration Now Allows Comcast, Verizon, and other Internet Service Providers to Sell Your Personal Information Without Your Permission

Your Internet provider has a view of of your most intimate online activities. Although Google uses encryption to prevent prying eyes from seeing your online searches, your Internet provider can see what websites you visit, when you visit them, and how much time you spend there. Now those Internet providers can sell that information without your permission.

  1. Does using a browser such as Brave confound ISPs from gaining usable personal information from my online activities?
    After using Brave for a week, it seems to do all the browser things I would want. However, my local newspaper, The Hartford Courant, requires Java. Do I dare add Java to Brave or should I use Safari for just this one web site?
    Thanks for keeping me aware of the ever evolving world of privacy.

      Using the Brave web browser will NOT hide the URLs of web sites you visit. However, using a VPN will hide those URLs. You can read my past articles about VPNs by starting at https://privacyblog.com/category/vpn-virtual-private-networking/

      The Tor Browser Bundle WILL block anyone from seeing the URLs you visit. However, the Tor Browser Bundle is a bit more complex and runs much slower than most VPNs. The good news is that the Tor Browser is free. You can read more about the Tor Browser Bundle by starting at: http://bit.ly/2lw9VvU
