This legislation would address a disturbing national trend: demands from employers and schools for access to the password-protected private social media accounts of employees, students, and applicants.

Private communications and activities deserve the same protections online and offline. We would never allow employers or school staff to search our homes, read our diaries or mail, listen in on private gatherings with friends, or look at our private videos or photo albums. Our digital data deserves the same protections.
