Help Save Online Privacy

Our online privacy is under attack. Corporate internet providers like Comcast and AT&T would prefer to gather all of our browsing data and sell it to third parties — without asking permission from anyone. These types of companies have a huge, unique window into the private lives of their customers. Thankfully, a new rule from the FCC would stop this practice and prevent them from using our information without our say-so.

Under this groundbreaking new protection — set to go into effect this year — internet providers are required to get your permission before mining and selling your data. As expected, the major companies affected are already challenging this privacy safeguard.

Last week, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai declared that he would halt part of the Commission’s new privacy rule before it kicks in on March 2, with a threat to repeal the entire rule. That last-minute decision is now under fire from within the FCC and beyond. That’s why we must speak out now. 

Join our campaign on Thunderclap to speak out for our online privacy. Together we'll push back against lobbyists trying to roll back our privacy protections.
