This bipartisan bill would ensure stronger protections for consumers’ online data by requiring companies to make privacy disclosures clearer and more transparent and giving consumers power to opt out of data collection. Letting the FTC take the lead on enforcement makes sense.
This bill imposes too heavy a burden on social media companies and online platforms to disclose privacy policies and allow consumers to opt out of sharing their data. The FTC & states should be able to pursue simultaneous enforcement actions.
