And people thought Windows 10 was bad. For people in the UK I guess the only solutions would be to use Tails and Tor to keep your privacy along with something like proton mail for your email but I have no doubt the NSA is already doing the same only not saying.
Privacy International explained why the powers for government agencies to collect "internet connection records" are so far reaching.
"At the very least, they comprise a 12-month log of websites visited, communications software used, system updates downloaded, desktop widgets used, every mobile app used and logs of any other device connecting to the internet, such as games consoles, baby monitors, digital cameras and e-book readers," it warned.
Any flaws, known or unknown, could then be exploited to break into any individual's computer or smartphone, revealing a much wider range of information about people than they might otherwise realise.
Privacy International added: "They are comparable to a compilation of call records, postal records, library records, study and research records, social and leisure activity records and location records, and will additionally capture concerns about health, sexual and family issues.
"The agencies would be able to acquire this intrusive, population-level data in bulk under bulk acquisition powers."
