On Friday, a US House panel approved legislation to renew the National Security Agency's warrantless internet surveillance program, despite objections from both the technology sector and civil liberties groups citing concerns over a lack of privacy protection.

With a thirteen to eight vote, the House Intelligence Committee passed the measure to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act for a further four years until 2021.

Intelligence agencies claim that Section 702 is integral to national security and protecting American allies, and the Trump administration wants minimal changes to it.

However, privacy advocates have criticized the bill for not requiring a warrant to access collected data belonging to Americans..
