Privacy activist wants to unveil lawmakers' browser histories

Sharon Gaudin | March 31, 2017
GoFundMe campaign focused on fighting back at Internet privacy changes.

She doesn't expect the activist's efforts to release the private information of Republicans in Congress to have much affect, but said the "problems will be dramatic" if the resolution becomes law.

However, Rob Enderle, an analyst with the Enderle Group, said the changes could have a positive effect.

"In a competitive market, it should help keep prices down," Enderle said. "Companies like Google had been selling this kind of information for some time, helping fund their free services."

He, too, doesn't expect McElhaney's effort to have much effect.

"It may simply result in aggressive actions against people personally attacking lawmakers," Enderle said.
