U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has penned a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook requesting that the company offer a "Do Not Track" option for its customers, The Hill reports. Hawley's call comes two weeks after he introduced a bill that would give citizens the right to block websites from tracking them and a day after Apple revealed new privacy features at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. "My bill takes a giant leap toward ending the greedy data-grabbing practices of bad-actor companies," Hawley wrote in the letter. "But this effort should not be led by Congress alone. You have it in your power to make good on your promise to be an industry leader. You should do so by implementing the principles behind my Do Not Track bill immediately."
