Have plans to travel in the USA? Prepare your social media password!

Do you plan to travel or work in the USA? If yes, be ready and prepare your social media password like in Facebook. Not only this, because they also could ask what websites you visit. The US embassy could ask for this details when applying for US visa.  Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said this will be for future background checks in an effort to toughen critical examination of visitors. This will also screen people who could pose a security threat.



Do you plan to travel or work in the USA? If yes, be ready and prepare your social media password like in Facebook. Not only this, because they also could ask what websites you visit. The US embassy could ask for this details when applying for US visa.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said this will be for future background checks in an effort to toughen critical examination of visitors. This will also screen people who could pose a security threat.




Asking social media password is one of the things that is being considered for visitors especially coming from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen -- the seven Muslim-majority countries earlier being banned to the US.

"We're looking at some enhanced or some additional screening," Kelly told a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee. "We may want to get on their social media, with passwords," he said.

"It's very hard to truly vet these people in these countries, the seven countries... But if they come in, we want to say, what websites do they visit, and give us your passwords. So we can see what they do on the internet."

"If they don't want to cooperate, then they don't come in" to the United States, he said.



As of this moment, Kelly said there is no decision had been made but tighter screening will be implemented in the future, even if it means longer delays for awarding US visas to visitors.

"But over there we can ask them for this kind of information and if they truly want to come to America, then they will cooperate. If not, next in line."
