Today’s post is short. And your immediate action is needed. There is a whitehouse.gov petition to require government agencies such as the IRS to get a warrant before accessing our personal documents stored in the cloud. Currently, the extremely outdated Electronic Communications Privacy Act allows hundreds of government agencies to access documents we store online to be accessed without a warrant. This needs to stop.
Please take the time to sign the petition. I know you have to create an account, but you don’t have to signup for updates. And the account creation process is simple. And being able to sign the petition makes it worth your time.
Once you’ve signed the petition, please let your friends and family know about the petition. If the petition does not have a 100,000 signatures by tomorrow, it will not get a response from the White House. That’s why it is critically important that you act now.Sign The Petition
Thank you for taking the time to let the government know that they need to get a warrant.
