Say NO to mass government hacking of Americans!

An obscure committee in the federal bureaucracy recently voted to allow the FBI to hack into your personal devices and access your personal data without obtaining an individual warrant to do so.

The changes approved by the Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Criminal Rules to what is known as “Rule 41” would allow the government to get a single warrant to hack into an unlimited number of computers and digital devices owned by law-abiding Americans if their device was merely affected by criminal activity.

This dramatic and constitutionally questionable expansion of the government’s hacking and surveillance authority is poised to go into effect on December 1 – unless Congress acts. Such a change should be debated by Congress in the light of day – not handed down by unelected bureaucrats.

I’ve introduced the Stopping Mass Hacking Act to stop these changes. Congress must pass this bill to stop this dangerous change!

Sign the Petition: Say NO to mass government hacking!

To the U.S. Congress:

On December 1, the FBI gains the ability hack into our personal devices and extract our personal data without getting an individual warrant. This dramatic and constitutionally-questionable expansion of the government’s hacking and surveillance authority goes too far and it’s up to Congress to stop it. Pass the Stopping Mass Hacking Act without delay and stand up for our constitutional rights!
