More than a million people willingly shared one of their most private pieces of personal data with the Government’s own Pandora’s Box, Irish Water, when they didn’t have to.

After major demonstrations nationwide, the Government caved in and scrapped the PPS requirement. But now Irish Water have all these personal bits of information, a whole database of them.

According to company sources, Irish Water have now put a ‘protocol’ in place to remove these PPS numbers from their system, and they are liaising with the data protection commissioner to do so.

What this protocol is, or how the removal of the PPS numbers will be handled is yet unknown at this time.
