“The Online Privacy Act of 2021 takes the steps needed to change the business practices that drive corporate surveillance in the United States. Representatives Eshoo and Lofgren’s bill sets forth strong rights for Internet users, promotes innovation, and establishes a Digital Privacy Agency that will ensure that the U.S. adequately oversees technologies that permeate all our lives.
