USA Considering Demanding Passwords/Phone Address Books from British, French, German Air Travelers*


British visitors to the US may be asked for social media usernames and passwords and their phone’s address book under new border checks being considered at US airports.

The Trump administration is considering “extreme vetting” scenarios in which even tourists from US allies such as the UK, France and Germany are subject to intense security checks, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“We will do it when we think there’s a reason to do it,” US Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told a US Senate committee hearing last week. “The vast majority of people will not be questioned in that way.” However, he did not elaborate on the plans.

  • I include the asterisk in the title after reading "The vast majority of people will not be questioned in that way."

    By vast majority of people, they mean the ones who aren't brown.
