Tech Industry face challenges from Internet Privacy Controls

If it's on the Internet, it isn't private.

The federal government has given a notice to technology companies like Microsoft, Google, & other tech companies to prevent consumers from advertisers from tracking their movements across the Web — or face regulation.

The technology industry has yet to decide and agree on a simple, meaningful solution to protect consumer privacy on the Internet.

Many Companies like Microsoft and Mozilla are coming up with various approaches of “Do Not Track” technologies.

– Microsoft has provided a feature called “tracking protection” in Internet Explorer 9.0 that lets users to create “black lists” of sites they want to blocked & “white lists” of websites that are acceptable.

– Mozilla has also provided a feature in its Firefox 4 browser that sends a signal to alert websites, advertisers & advertisement networks if a user does not want to be tracked.

-Apple is also expected to include a similar feature in the future, called a “header,” in its Safari browser.

But an industry-wide solution is required to fix all Privacy issues on the Internet.
