The White House is finally getting caught up with the perception of Americans losing control of their private data.
President Barack Obama recently announced a set of legislative proposals made to safeguard privacy in all sectors as well as tech, energy, and education.
The Student Digital Privacy Act, an education bill, would prevent tech firms from looking into student data and selling it to other parties that utilize it for non-educational reasons as well as taking part in aggressive advertising to children.
Over seventy firms have signed on the proposal which include Microsoft, Apple, and ClassDojo, a tech firm that offers teaching tools.
The White House made a promise in proposing the legislation of the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights --- a code of corporate conduct released by the Obama administration three years ago. The bill of rights indicate that consumers have the right in managing personal data gathered by companies, and that such security and privacy policies should be simple enough to access and easy to comprehend.
