+ - Warrantless Searches: Why Your Digital Privacy Is At Risk In The Senate->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "A new Senate proposal, touted as a measure to protect American's email privacy, was quietly changed to allow the federal government to read your emails without a warrant, according to CNET. The vote on the bill is scheduled for next week. If the vote passes, it could deal a huge blow to your digital privacy.

The bill, sponsored by chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee Patrick Leahy, would allow more than 22 agencies, including the FBI, SEC and FCC, to access the emails, Google Docs, Facebook posts, Twitter messages and more of all Americans — all without a warrant. Even scarier, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security would be able to access all of your internet accounts without notifying the owner of the accounts or a judge."
