The Senate just voted to let the government keep surveilling your online life without a warrant

From Recode:

the Senate voted on Wednesday not to protect Americans’ internet browsing and search history data from secret and warrantless surveillance by law enforcement. The measure needed 60 votes to pass. It got 59.

I barely recognize this country anymore.

It’s also worth noting, this is yet another reason to use DuckDuckGo as your search engine (they don’t save your searches or track you), and reconsider using browser history sync. A VPN will also help if you’re worried about your ISP selling or otherwise turning your data over.

Ok, now what?
