NY Digital Privacy Protections Have Not Been Updated Since 1986

The last time New York Laws Protecting your Digital Privacy were Updated was in 1986.

Think about it: That was before the Internet. Before there were digital Cell Phones. Before everyone used Email.

That’s why our Privacy Laws today in New York make no sense and totally Fail to offer you adequate Protection, they afford more Protection to Letters in a File Cabinet than to your Digital Communications, which for most New Yorkers is ALL of their Communications.

The Electronic Privacy Act, New York Senate Bill SB6044, sponsored by Senator Tony Avella [D], requires the Police to get a warrant before tracking your phone or reading your emails, texts, or personal information online, just like they had to do when searching your file cabinet in 1986.

It makes perfect sense, but we need to speak up to make this happen. The legislative session is ending in weeks, and with that ends our chance this year to have Digital Privacy Protections in New York that fit our Digital World.
