Everything you do online is now state knowledge. If you live in the UK parliament has passed the investigatory power act. It allows the government to hack personal devices without suspicion of a crime. It makes every citizen’s web history available to the list of agencies.

The DOJ’s claims are dishonest: #Rule41 substantively changes the limits on the government’s powers. The FBI’s hacking was just legalized.

The bill was passed after the court ruled, the agencies illegally mined personal data for 17 years, rather than end the practice parliament legalize it.
Home Office Statement:
The investigatory powers act dramatically increases transparency … It protects both privacy and security.
