Everyone in the UK will have their internet activity stored for a year by service providers, due to its new surveillance law plans.
“Police and intelligence officers will have the ability to see the names of sites people that have visited without a warrant”, according to Home Secretary Theresa May.
However, there would be new safeguards over MI5, MI6 and the police spying on the entirety of individuals’ web content and use.
May told MPs the proposed law was necessary in fighting crime and terror.
Security services argue they must access large amounts of data in order to help them monitor any suspected foreign terrorists or criminals that could potentially pose a threat to the UK.
