The NSA spying program could soon come to an end — if the White House listens to the NSA’s recommendation.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the National Security Agency is recommending that the White House abandon the agency’s metadata surveillance program, which was first brought to light by the leaks released by former contractor Edward Snowden in 2013.

The program allowed for the bulk collection of data such as phone numbers and timestamps of calls and texts, but did not collect the actual content of these communications.
