EPIC, Coalition Urge DHS Secretary to Reject Social Media Password Requirement

Such a requirement would undermine privacy and human rights, chill freedom of speech and association, and create greater security risks for travelers.

In response, EPIC immediately filed a Freedom of Information Act request regarding all DHS plans to use individuals' internet and social media information to vet potential entrants to the U.S.
