Michigan Passes Law to Protect Social Media Accounts

It looks like Michigan has joined a growing number of states prohibiting employers and schools from asking for login information to their personal social media accounts.

House Bill 5523, signed by Governor Rick Snyder and introduced by state Rep. Aric Nesbitt, "prohibit[s] employers and educational institutions from requiring certain individuals to grant access to, allow observation of, or disclose information that allows access to or observation of personal internet accounts."
