US Judges Approve 30000 Secret Electronic Surveillance Orders Each Year
This is not a joke but very real information. This is a complete truth. This is possible due to the adopted law on electronic communications. This act could be changed at the request of large companies and those who care about digital privacy. A special investigation was also carried out on this subject, according to which more than 30,000 closed surveillance orders were issued in 2006.
However, not all of these instructions have been published. These electronic orders are valid only in cases where a citizen has committed an offense. If there were no crimes, then the surveillance of people continues, so many people do not even suspect it. Daily, the government monitors their activities on social networks and on the Internet, regardless of the specifics of the actions.
ECPA is old legislation allowing large corporations to spy on their users without permission legally. For example, if the police will search your house, they will first receive a warrant. At the same time, companies can follow you without worrying about being punished.
The situation may differ in the future, but the law is now in effect. Of course, you can protect your digital privacy yourself using available methods.
