Federal regulations designed to give you more control over your web browsing history and other personal information may soon be eliminated.

There are steps you can take to protect yourself — but you’ll have to do more than set your browser to private mode. And there is no perfect solution, experts agree.

 The House of Representatives voted Tuesday to repeal Internet privacy protections that were approved by the Federal Communications Commission in the final days of the Obama administration, following a Senate vote last week to roll back the rules.

The protections would have required internet service providers, such as Comcast (CCV) or CenturyLink, to ask for permission before tracking and selling users’ information. The resolution now goes to President Trump’s desk, and the White House said Tuesday it “strongly supports” the repeal.

The information in question includes everything from where you are to what you’re looking at online. A provider could infer that you’re sick, for example, because you looked at WebMD.
