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.
Click here to sign the Access petition calling for this bill’s passage and we’ll deliver your signatures directly to an undecided Congress before they vote on the bill:
Tens of thousands of us around the world rallied against CISPA to protect our privacy from being shared between corporations and governments. Now we have the chance to be proactive about keeping our personal lives private online. Employers can’t go through your postal mail or your file cabinet. So why is it okay for them to fire you for refusing to turn over your password?
There are approximately 875 million people on Facebook — imagine what we can do if we can mobilize a portion of this to affect change?
If you use the internet, this is an issue that affects everything you do. We are counting on you to help spread the word. Start by clicking here to sign the Access petition, then share it with everyone on Facebook and on Twitter.
Thanks for your support,
