Democrats To Employers: Stop Asking For Facebook Passwords

The Password Protection Act of 2012 would make it illegal for employers to force current or potential employees to hand over access to their social network accounts.

Democrats in Washington are aiming to protect employees being asked to hand over the keys to their Facebook accounts.

A new bill introduced yesterday in the U.S. Senate would seek to stop employers from requesting passwords or access to an employee's account on Facebook and other social networks.

Known as the Password Protection Act Of 2012 (PDF), the bill is the latest response from politicians over the growing trend of employers eager to snoop around their workers' online accounts.
