Just when it looked like folks would turn their backs on being spied on via their browsing habits...

The government has dropped a plan to use strict age verification checks to stop under-18s viewing porn online.
It said the policy, which was initially set to launch in April 2018, would "not be commencing" after repeated delays, and fears it would not work.

The so-called porn blocker would have forced commercial porn providers to verify users' ages, or face a UK ban.
Digital Secretary Nicky Morgan said other measures would be deployed to achieve the same objectives.


This amounts to a major policy u-turn by the UK Govt,and they may face some exposure for the lack of any spine to their manifesto objectives but in the long term the goal of being able to see what folks are doing whilst browsing is successfully acheived, keeping the intelligence services happy.
