16 States Introduce New Privacy Protection Measures

The American Civil Liberties Union announced today that sixteen states across the country are introducing bills to protect residents' private data. The bills still need to pass through the legislature in each state.

"We are united in our belief that if the government has a legitimate reason for wanting to access someone’s communications or to use a device to track someone’s movements, it must get a warrant," Romero and Boldin wrote. "We also believe that if corporations want to track what Americans, including our children, do online, on private social media pages, or in school, they must get clear and express permission to do so. Without a warrant or our permission, they simply shouldn't be doing it."
