Tell the Senate: No Snooping Around My Emails Without A Warrant

Did you know that your snail mail has greater protections from law enforcement than your personal emails?
Under the current Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the government can access private emails older than 180 days stored on third-party servers, such as Google or Yahoo, without a warrant. However, the House Email Privacy Act and Senate ECPA Modernization Act of 2017 would make sure private communications stay private unless a search warrant is obtained. 

The Email Privacy Act recently passed in the House. Keep the momentum going by urging your Senators to support ECPA reform.
