And this is the same group that can force you to give them your social media credentials on entry. Terrific.

Edit: Wait, just social media handles/account names, not login details. That's less ridiculous. My mistake.

If someone hacks into the DHS or DOS database and gets your ESTA / visa application information, trust me, your social media handles leaking will be the least of your problems, there's plenty of juicier information about travelers in there already.

hey at least your insta stories and snapchat stories are safe, hurray to ephemeral messaging ! /sarcasm

Credentials or just account names?

I thought it was the former but checking again it looks like I misread and it was only the latter. That's still pretty rude but nowhere near as bonkers as I thought it was.
