First line of defense against ISP tracking subscribers

The full story has not yet been written, but the idea is
that Washington has now moved to allow Internet Service
Providers, such as Century Link and Comcast, to record
what users do online and sell that information. Government
itself is also interested in citizen papers, possessions, interests,
and communications.

I have thought that some ISP might just feature non tracking,
as some search engines do, now. It looks like it won't be that
easy. Browser based privacy measures have been quite a success.

That's all fake news RedDirt.  Promoted by the fake, lying, propagandists.  All they government did was get rid of duplication, two agencies doing the same thing.  Obummer gave the FCC the authority to oversee privacy when the FTC already had that responsibility.  The people at the FCC raising hell and lying are obummer appointees too.  The FCC was never responsible for Internet privacy, until obummer.  Remember that.

FTC or FCC, either one. Washington is in the process of declaring the internet a regulated private utility. We absolutely must recover
land line telephone integrity, just as we had since its invention.

http://www.businessinsider.com/fcc-ajit-pai-privacy-rules-isp-statement-2017-2

Is this the same thing people have been talkikng about?
Here, Chairman Pai is arguing that ISP’s should have the
same snooping ability as Google. Unfair, he says.
1) I am understanding that MS engineers were balkng at
building a spy machine for Gates, so he went to India
and Taiwan for engiineers, who shared no such concern.
Now we are paying a dear price. MS, Google, and US Govt
have created an unmangeable  nightmare.
2) The Giants continue to mislead us, framing these issues 
as having to do with shopping preferences, allowing them
to put up the appropriate banners and popups. What nonsense! The recent election exposed the media conglomerates as flaming Big Brother control freaks, just as Orwelll predicted. What could be worse, they all vote Democrat.

The article:

It looks like the FCC wants to roll back rules requiring internet providers get your consent before selling your data

[i]Pai and O’Rielly voted against the rules in October. In his dissent, Pai’s main complaint was with what he saw as a double standard: He said that the order unfairly stuck ISPs with stricter rules than internet companies like Google, which are able to harvest and monetize personal data more freely under looser guidelines from the Federal Trade Commission.

The only reason the law was repealed was because of duplication.  Don't need two agencies getting paid for not doing their job.  We never had privacy on the internet, our ISP has always sold our surfing habits, nothing has changed except some money was saved by the gooberment.  The media is blowing this up to make Trump look bad.  It's a non issue.  If it is an issue, dump your ISP, build a server, and pay the costs for direct access to the internet.  If you want to increase your privacy, or secure your information, using a vpn is the best route to go for now.  DON'T trust the free ones!  I'm looking at you Opera!

OK, got you. I agee, the internet has never been private. When it comes to banking, the companies patch together a complex of barriers, none of which has ever proven to be invulnerable.
One good thing, is that money has become numbers in the big Visa/MC data center. Someone defraud you? Just call Visa. They'll push a buttin and get your money back.  Grin
VPN's are growing. I had one from Avast and it was useless. But the VPN may hold the key to the revised, post-Obama internet.
For ecample, anonymous log in sounds like a small thing, but it really isn't. MS and Google are pushing the cloud. We can see it, but we also then see the entire user population becoming  clients of Google. That's no good. In a reconstructed system, all this http
work could be condensed, cached, and accessed with a simple line of numbers. No more of this incessant loading. Wouldn't that be nice. It would also mean super fast dial up, since we would only be sending little strings. Our pages could be returned mostly as images and simple text.
I'm thinking Washington and the Media are keeping terrorism around to have an excuse to why this kind of stuff isn't happening, already.

For a VPN I use Tunnel Bear.  I have their annual subscription, so data is unlimited.  So far it works well.  It's really good for blacked out football and baseball games. YMMV
