Gov. Kemp Signs New Law Jeopardizing Georgians’ Security & Freedom Online

ATLANTA—Today, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed SB 351, which creates a mandated identity verification scheme for social media access. Despite some admirable aspects of this legislation, the problems arise when examining the fine print of this new law, which becomes effective on July 1, 2025. 

“SB 351 breaches Georgians’ privacy, endangers security, violates constitutional rights, and creates a one-size-fits all ‘solution’ that erases parents. This unconstitutional law will not help a single Georgian or family,” said Carl Szabo, NetChoice Vice President & General Counsel.

Szabo continued: “It’s unfortunate to see Georgia implement a similar, failed idea as some other states across the country. Already, states like Ohio have unsuccessfully tried to enact similar approaches, and various courts have echoed concerns when halting these laws. There are better ways to protect Georgians, their families and their data online without infringing on their freedoms or jeopardizing their safety and security.”
