Campaign for a Modern Fourth Amendment

Technological innovation has outpaced our privacy protections. As a result, our digital footprint can be tracked by the government and corporations in ways that were once unthinkable.

This digital footprint is constantly growing, containing more and more data about the most intimate aspects of our lives.
