This also pertains to your other post about App tracking.

Any pretense we have of privacy has long since diminished. Everything is for sale, every time you use a computer, cell phone, shopping, credit card, or debit card, etc. they get more data to sell. Even your local utilities gather and store your info. Cable companies track your viewing habits. It's all for sale. It doesn't matter if you have an Android or Apple phone, they all track you. Net Neutrality - That's word spin for unregulated - open it up for unlimited data gathering, and flood the individual with millions of ads for every step they take.

Ever wonder why Google and Facebook are allowed free rein to gather info?

You're absolutely correct! It's why I do as much as I can with cash. Much harder to track what and where I'm doing whatever it is that I'm doing.

I'm not saying I'm completely insulated (with cameras in toilets and everywhere else!) but I do try to limit my exposure as much as possible.

I even wear a paper bag over my head in public! Kinda like the "Unknown Comic" if you're old enough to know who or is it what that might have been! razz

I don't understand how

I don't understand how removing net neutrality would benefit consumers. It just opens the door for ISPs to regulate like our cable companies.

bad news

This is bad news in more ways than one.

Privacy is only one little piece of this bad news.

Won't be long before you will notice a slow down in speed as the public will get a low priority from your ISP as they sell bandwidth to large cooperation's.

I also wonder if ISP's will start to "force" you to use their DNS and services like OPEN DNS or DYDNS will be shut out.

Curious ....

.....how some people think that governments can regulate areas they have NO control over ......
Of course totalitarianism solves everything! Censorship and propaganda resolves all these pesky little problems. And just think ...... it's all to protect us, the unsuspecting public ...

We are indeed fortunate to live in such a "progressive" age!

Elections have consequences.

We are in a pro business anti consumer environment. If you don't like it there is another election cycle in 2018.

IMO Net Neutrality is NOT pro business. It was simply another attempt by a government to try to control a marketplace for their (and their chosen ones) advantage ....... and all in the name of protecting the public .... cute ...... propaganda lives!

When will the dept of thought be created to help us understand better. Orwellian indeed!!!!!

It doesn't. The actual purpose is to benefit the 1 percent.

info grabbing

ever go into lowes and buy a box of screws, why do they need your phone number ? or how many of you had only one ring phone call from a number you cant call back to find out who called you because is says its a disconnected number . in the old days we called it a war dialer it would dial a group on phone numbers and tell you which were live numbers fax numbers disconnected numbers, how do scam artists get your name and number that call you and tell you that your computer is infected by a virus ? pirates don't all where eye patches some have a nice smile and a friendly face till they get all the info they need !

The time has come

For everyone to use a VPN.
There are free VPN's out there, just remember you get exactly what you pay for.

The real price you pay for a "free app" is your personal data surrendered to the advertisers .... read the fine print! ....even many paid apps specify some sort of sharing ....

With VPN being private and not possible to penetrate from outside use word "yet". If it will become too much trouble for "law" they will pass law that will force backdoor to sniff on VPN connections. Or they will do it illegally anyway.

Privacy

Someone must have open the window cause your Privacy out it went. Then they call it Democracy and Freedom of Speach.

I call it BS

Watch this "Spying on The Home Front" Then Think About VPN's
