Authorities should require permission from a judge before they look through your stuff, whether it's in your home or stored online.
Join over 3,000,000 people around the world in standing up for a free and open web.
Some of those things have monetary value, like your bank account data. Some have sentimental value, like family photos. And some are just personal things you don’t want others to see.
Online service providers, like Google, employ thousands of security experts to help make sure the files you upload to the Internet—and the data you store there—are safe and secure.
In some countries, governments can access the files you keep online without your knowledge, and without obtaining permission from a magistrate.
Keeping the free and open Internet means protecting the basic human rights of its users. That should include freedom from unwarranted government intrusion.
