NOT WITHOUT A WARRANT!
3 years ago

 

The government's power to read your email, access your private photos stored online and track your daily movements is defined in a 1986 law, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act. The privacy protections of ECPA have not been updated since 1986.


They say that the government can access your communications and monitor you without getting a warrant from a judge.


Isn't it time for privacy to catch up with technology?


Join the call to get Congress to reform ECPA by signing this petition:


"The government should be required to go to a judge and get a warrant before it can read our email, access private photographs and documents we store online, or track our location using our mobile phones. Please support legislation that would update the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 (ECPA) to require warrants for this sensitive information and to require the government to report publicly on the use of its surveillance powers."
