Privacy call for internet browsing

Privacy call for internet browsing. File photo dated 06/08/14 of a person using a laptop as more than eight out of 10 internet users believe browsing history should be kept private, a new survey has shown. Issue date: Friday May 30, 2014. The poll, commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust one year after US whistleblower Edward Snowdon leaked top-secret files revealing the activities of UK and US intelligence agencies, showed 85\% believe it is "fairly important", "very important" or "essential" to keep browsing records private. Only 12\% believe it is not important, the survey conducted by Ipsos Mori showed. In addition, respondents supported a call by the Don't Spy On US campaign for senior judges rather than ministers to sign off on warrants for data collection of electronic communications, when asked where oversight of the intelligence agencies should lie.
