A message from Access. Mobilizing for Global Digital Freedom.
Right now, your boss or school could demand that you hand over your Facebook, Twitter, or email password, and there is nothing you can do to stop them. Some people have even been fired from their jobs for refusing to reveal their passwords! But that could all change with the introduction of the Password Protection Act.
Previous attempts by governments to ban this practice have failed, in part because internet users haven’t made it a priority and spoken out against it. The Password Protection Act is our opportunity to finally end “Give up your password or else” policies and set an international standard for safeguarding our online identities.
We cannot be quiet anymore. Our passwords are the keys that protect our private lives, the people we communicate with, and all of our personal information.
