Everyone who can now see your entire internet history, including the taxman, DWP and Food Standards Agency

Internet providers will be forced to keep a full record of every site that each one of its customers have visited

Organisations including the Food Standards Agency and the Department for Work and Pensions will be able to see UK citizen’s entire internet browsing history in weeks.

The Investigatory Powers Bill, which was all but passed into law this week, forces internet providers to keep a full list of Internet Connection Records (ICRs) for a year, and make them available to the government if it asks. Those ICRs effectively serve as a full list of every website that people have visited, not collecting which specific pages are visited or what’s done on them but serving as a full list of every site that someone has visited and when.
