In the last couple of years within the United States of America, several states have recently enacted new legislation to address advances in cybersecurity, medical privacy, and other privacy-related laws.
More than a quarter of the states in the United States have introduced comprehensive data privacy legislation. However, only a few of the state's proposed legislation have advanced to the cross-chamber or cross-committee level, which means they have been debated in their respective state legislatures and are close to being signed into law.
See the below chart for a number of the Proposed Privacy Laws, Their Current Status, and what Rights they protect:
This Chart lays the information out pretty clearly in what you are protected from depending on the state. As we have discussed before, many companies may be doing this or have been doing it for a period of time. If you are in the right state, you can now ask for that information back or to be deleted.
The following are more specifics on states that have passed Privacy Related Legislation:
Expands the protections for personal information held by consumers. Allows customers to:
Creates the California Privacy Protection Agency, which will be responsible for enforcing and enforcing consumer privacy laws and imposing fines. Changes the requirements that enterprises must meet to comply with the law. Maximum penalties for offenses involving consumers under the age of 16 are tripled.
The second after the California legislation, Establishes a framework for the Commonwealth's control and processing of personal data. The law applies to anybody who does business in the Commonwealth and either.
This law is based off of California's Consumer Privacy Act, while additionally the law establishes obligations for data controllers and processors, as well as privacy protection measures. Consumers have the right to access, rectify, delete, and receive a copy of their data and opt-out of personal data processing for targeted advertising under the legislation. Finally, that any company or "controller" must receive explicit consent before processing a customer's data.
The Colorado privacy law SB-190, has similar traits to that of California's but also adds the following:
This law is another great step in Consumer and Personal Information being put back into the hands of everyone.
Nevada should be mentioned as it is a step in this direction, but ultimately,
"Companies are still allowed to share personally identifiable information with their own business affiliates and, for an individual to be eligible to opt out, a business must intend to actually sell the data." Read More
While also Requires an operator(a person who owns or operates a commercial Internet website or online service or gathers and stores specific information about Nevada residents) to set up a designated request address where a consumer can send a verified request instructing the operator not to sell any covered information gathered about them.
A lot of what we do is because we think that your Privacy should be a given. Unfortunately, in this day and age, many companies took advantage of early loopholes to store data on their current and future consumers.
We believe that these states are just the beginning and we hope that all states will follow suit.
Until then, we're here to help.

Music is a necessity for me. My i-pod needs protection also, as my info is on it as well as my music. This sleeve fits it perfect.

I absolutely love my backpack I purchased… we need to protect our privacy now more than ever. I don’t travel without this & neither should you 😎
This is definitely a great bag for your phone. It sure seems to block everything I have tried to throw at it. Will be purchasing more!
Seems to work as expected. Hope to never do a hard test. Feel my backups are now well protected.
I purchased the SLNT pocket that an iphone 11 with an Otter Box fits in. The quality of the finished product is HIGH. I'm not addicted to my phone, so this allows me to place the phone in the pocket before traveling about daily without dropping digital crumbs along the way that could be used to reverse engineer my personal movements, locations and destinations with greater ease. I value my privacy due it being a fundamental human right despite what any judge or agency claims to the contrary.
I was very pleased to realize that this particular SLNT fits into my back pants pocket!!! The width is 'just right'. Now that's attention to detail. This is my 3rd SLNT and I recommend them to a lot of folks. Most have never heard of such a product, let alone the reason to have one and use it.
To anyone considering these products, as others have said, just get it! We live in an age where we need it. Location tracking is digital stalking. I really appreciate that some dirtbag won't be able to pull info out of my device either. Thank You SLNT, nice job.
Excellent quality, handsome, fit well, I like them and use them. Good to have protection.
Live in a condominium area. Thank you for giving me back my privacy!!
My laptop is now waterproof, padded and protected from solar flares, EMP's, hackers and trackers.
And it looks good too
4-5 starts.... well made, great function ...not only do I feel like I've helped secure my privacy but when I place the phone in the pocket I am able to disconnect from tech and have quiet private time with less stress and fewer distractions. Psychologically its been a great aid to me.
The Silent Pocket is a fantastic accessory, I am sleeping better with lack of EMF in the room and knowing that my privacy is literally in my hands.
Shipping took very little time, very happy!
