Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Comment on the Administration’s Approach to Consumer Privacy

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration requested comments on their approach to consumer privacy. Consumer Reports submitted comments to the NTIA, advocating for a stronger data minimization principle, the framing of a privacy violation as a per se harm, and strong enforcement and accountability measures in order to incentivize companies to sufficiently protect consumer data.
