Maryland has introduced a bill seeking to protect student-athletes’ social media privacy.  The bill states that an institution of postsecondary education may not require a student or applicant to 1) provide access to his or her personal account; 2) disclosure user name(s), password(s), or other means of accessing a student’s personal account(s); or 3) install software on a student or applicant’s electronic device that monitors the content of communications.  Further, the bill does not allow an institution of postsecondary education to penalize or threaten to discipline or penalize a student or applicant for failure to provide access or disclosure any of the information described above.  If the bill passes, students will be afforded additional protections.
