Browser setting rules could be dropped from new ePrivacy Regulation

Plans to force web browser providers to ask users to set their privacy preferences could be scrapped, according to ePrivacy Regulation proposals under consideration by EU law makers as they have raised a lot of concerns. Such requirement would create burden for browsers and apps, the competition aspect, the link to fines for non-compliance but also the impact on end-users and the ability of this provision to address e.g. the issue of consent fatigue.
