Visitors Entering The US May Have to Hand Over Social Media Passwords



Although President Donald Trumps attempt to ban immigrants from entering the US has been stopped for now, it looks like immigrants are not off the hook just yet.

According to reports, smartphone users seeking to enter the US on a visa may be asked to hand over their social media passwords and phones in the near future.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary, John Kelly made the announcement last night at the hearing of the Homeland Security Committee.
“We’re looking at some enhanced or some additional screening.We may want to get on their social media, with passwords. It’s very hard to truly vet these people in these countries, the seven countries. But if they come in, we want to say, what websites do they visit, and give us your passwords. So we can see what they do on the internetThese are the things we are thinking about. But over there we can ask them for this kind of information and if they truly want to come to America, then they will cooperate. If not, next in line,” Kelly said.
