NSA says its new phone surveillance program meets privacy standards

The National Security Agency has today published its first transparency report, which states that its new phone surveillance program meets the privacy standards of the US Freedom Act that shut down its old bulk phone spying program.

After being revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013, and coming under fire for being ineffectual and an invasion of US citizens’ privacy, the NSA shut its old mass surveillance program down on November 28, 2015.

In its stead, the NSA launched a new program to comply with the new Freedom Act, which was signed into law mid-2015 by President Barack Obama.
