Privacy groups turn spotlight on tech companies

22 sec read

The best news the US government received this week was that the privacy groups that have been going after them ever since Edward Snowden’s revelations and even before then are now turning their focus on the large tech companies that may be complicit in this whole mess.

Several advocacy groups are calling for an investigation into Internet companies Yahoo and Google whose networks were secretly accessed by the National Security Agency (NSA).

In a letter sent last week, the groups asked the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) find out how the NSA could extract so much data without the knowledge of Google and Yahoo.
