The list of states that have passed social media legislation is getting longer. Early next week, Oklahoma will become the newest state to consider social media legislation (along with approximately 23 others) to prohibit employers from asking employees or applicants to provide them with their social media account passwords and from being forced to access their social media accounts with their employer present.

Legislation was introduced in mid-January in Virginia that would prohibit public and private colleges and universities from requiring students to disclose their passwords to school officials.

The Uniform Law Commission is scheduled to vote in July of 2016 on model social media legislation that would include prohibition of employers’ access to employees’ information and colleges and universities to access students’ social media accounts.
