By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Governor Brown just signed a law that says ‘no’ to warrantless government snooping of Californians’ digital information.

The bill, California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (CalECPA, SB 178) became a California Law and was authored jointly by Senator Mark Leno, D-11th District and Senator Joel Anderson, R-Alpine; protects Californians against warrantless law enforcement access to private electronic communications such as emails, text messages and GPS data that are stored in the cloud and on smart phones, tablets, laptops and other digital devices. The bill passed both houses of the Legislature earlier this year with strong, bipartisan support.

“This is a landmark win for digital privacy, We hope this is a model for the rest of the nation in protecting our digital privacy rights.” – said Nicole Ozer, Technology & Civil Liberties Policy Director at the ACLU of California.

“For too long, California’s digital privacy laws have been stuck in the Dark Ages, leaving our personal emails, text messages, photos and smartphones increasingly vulnerable to warrantless searches,” said Senator Leno. “That ends today with the Governor’s signature of CalECPA, a carefully crafted law that protects personal information of all Californians. The bill also ensures that law enforcement officials have the tools they need to continue to fight crime in the digital age.” – source: Sen. Mark Leno’s website

“Senator Leno and I helped bridge the gap between progressives and conservatives to make the privacy of Californians a top priority this year, this bipartisan bill protects Californians’ basic civil liberties as the Fourth Amendment and the California Constitution intended.” – said Senator Joel Anderson.
