Proposed Ohio Law Would Officially Allow Snooping on Kids’ Text Messages, Calls, and Emails

Writing on Slate, Ryan Gallagher reports on an Ohio representative’s bill that would enable adults to monitor their children’s digital communication.

“Rep. Brian Hill, R-Zanesville, is pushing to amend a state wiretapping law…making it permissible for parents, grandparents, guardians, and custodians to snoop on their kids’ communications so long as they are under the age of 18. The interception would have to be made, according to the proposed law, “in good faith for the protection of the child.”
