US data privacy: “stark imbalance” of protection across States

When it comes to data privacy protection, the US isn’t exactly a super power. The American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) could be the first comprehensive federal privacy legislation that citizens, experts, and digital rights activists have been calling for. Unfortunately, the Act is under review and nowhere near to be implemented anytime soon.

Americans enjoy vastly different privacy protections based on where they live. This creates opportunities for data breaches and unscrupulous companies to exploit customers’ most personal and confidential information. Especially now, one year after Roe vs Wade fell, people in the US need to know how protect the privacy of their digital lives.
