Introduce new restrictions on accessing password protected accounts

Petition Details

We want legislation to ban any 'remote access' by a third party to password protected end user accounts without express consent or notification of access.

Additional Information

The technology exists to seek permission of an end user to permit access if needed. At such times, the Authoriser could be able to see their screens and what action is taking place. Should urgent remote access be needed without time to gain consent, a full record of access and actions should be available and accessible to the password holder a.s.a.p.
