Bill Summary

Reasonable Expectation of American Privacy Act of 2013 or the REAP Act of 2013 - Amends the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 to prohibit a provider of electronic communication service or remote computing service to the public from knowingly divulging subscriber or customer password information to any person or entity.

Provides exceptions from such prohibition to authorize such providers to disclose password information if it is:

  • required by the government pursuant to a warrant;
  • divulged with the customer's consent;
  • incident to the rendition of the service or to the protection of the rights or property of the service provider;
  • provided to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children; or
  • divulged to the government if the provider believes that an emergency involving danger of death or serious physical injury requires disclosure without delay of password information relating to the emergency.
