If you think your password-protected online account is safe from government snooping — think again.
CNET reports the feds are hitting up all the big internet companies — AOL, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google and Yahoo among others — demanding they turn over your passwords.
Not one of the tech giants confirmed that they received such a request.
But if this report is true — CNET notes it is “an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not previously been disclosed.”
Just last month — NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed the feds are tapping phone calls and monitoring the web activity of millions of people.
Should major internet providers give up the information to the government or do they have the obligation to protect you?
