Submission + - Calif. Employers Can't Ask For Your Facebook Password (washingtonpost.com)

J053 writes: "California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a pair of privacy bills making it illegal for employers and colleges to demand access to social media accounts.

Brown announced on Thursday that he signed AB1844 by Assemblywoman Nora Campos, a Democrat from San Jose. The bill prohibits employers from demanding user names and passwords from employees and job applicants.

A companion bill applies to colleges and universities."
