Feds Can Read Every Email You Opened Last Year Without a Warrant

It’s no longer a surprise that the government is reading your emails. What you might not know is that it can readily read most of your email without a warrant.

Any email or social networking message you’ve opened that’s more than six months old can also be accessed by every law enforcement official in government — without needing to get a warrant. That’s because a key provision in a law almost three decades’ old allows this kind of access with a mere subpoena, which doesn’t require a judge.

Details may be found in an article by Zack Whittaker in the ZDnet web site at http://www.zdnet.com/article/every-email-you-opened-last-year-can-be-read-by-the-fbi-without-a-warrant/.
