  UK police push for powers to access your Web browsing history for the
  last year

    Part of a concerted drive by UK's security apparatus to extend
    online surveillance powers.

Police access to Web browsing histories is likely to drive the increased 
use of Tor and VPNs.

UK police are lobbying the government to be given access to every UK 
Internet user's Web browsing history as part of the new Snooper's 
Charter—the Investigatory Powers Bill—which is expected to be published 
next week. According to/The Guardian/, the police want to revive the 
controversial plan for ISPs to store details aboutevery website visited 
by customers for 12 months 
an idea first mooted in the originalCommunications Data Bill 
which was dropped after opposition from the Liberal Democrats when they 
were part of the previous coalition government.

Richard Berry, the National Police Chiefs’ Council spokesman for data 
communications, is quoted as saying: "We essentially need the ‘who, 
where, when and what’ of any communication"—who initiated it, where were 
they and when did it happened. And a little bit of the ‘what’, were they 
on Facebook, or a banking site, or an illegal child-abuse image-sharing 




Edward Snowden takes to Twitter to mock UK's contradictory statements.

According to/The Guardian/, Berry accepted that it was "far too 
intrusive" for police to be able to access the content of online 
searches and social media messaging without additional controls—for 
example, by requiring a warrant signed by a judge.

One of the problems with the idea of allowing police access to 
somebody's Web browsing history for the previous year is that, taken in 
aggregate, that information gives a very detailed picture of a person's 
life, and is thus just as intrusive as viewing online searches or social 
media messages. Another issue is that it is easy to circumvent this kind 
of snooping by usingTor <https://www.torproject.org/>or a VPN, both of 
which would obfuscate your behaviour enough that your ISP can't track you.

The move by the police seems to be part of a larger campaign by the UK's 
security apparatus to push for thelong-expected Investigatory Powers 
grant them as many new powers as possible. As Ars reported yesterday, 
both GCHQ and MI5 have been making the case forincreased online 
which they like to frame as "merely" retaining capabilities they enjoyed 
when communications were analogue. Although it is true that the fraction 
of messages that they can track has gone down in recent years, this 
overlooks the fact that the overall volume of communications has gone up 
even more substantially, which outweighs any percentage loss.
