State Senate seeks to safeguard workers' Facebook passwords
Washington state senators are looking to safeguard the social media passwords of workers and job applicants.
A bill approved Wednesday would prohibit employers from asking employees for the credentials to personal social media accounts. The Associated Press reported last year that some employers around the country were asking applicants for their social media information.
Democratic Sen. Steve Hobbs of Lake Stevens says it's an important privacy issue.
The bill passed by a 49-0 margin and now goes to the state House.
