Tech Giants Praised for Supporting Digital Privacy Protections for Californians

Technology companies including Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, and Google were praised for supporting the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act. The law, which was successfully enacted and went into effect in January 2016, requires California law enforcement to get a warrant to gain access to electronic information, including email and text messages, online documents, sensitive metadata, and location information. Press warmly applauded the companies for “taking note of customers’ privacy concerns” in uniting behind the effort.
