See the list of government agencies that can access your browsing history #IPBill

The Investigatory Powers Bill forces internet providers to keep a full list of internet connection records (ICRs) for a year and to make them available to the Government if asked. Those ICRs in effect serve as a full list of every website that people have visited. Goodbye privacy! There is not nearly enough outrage about this.

The full list of agencies that can now ask for UK citizens’ browsing history, which is laid out in Schedule 4 of the Bill and was collected by Chris Yiu, is below:
