Title: Connected devices: device protection requests.
Author: Susan Rubio

Summary
SB 1000, as amended, Ashby. Connected devices: device protection requests. Existing law authorizes a court to issue a restraining order to a person to prevent abuse, as specified, based on reasonable proof of a past act or acts of abuse. Existing law authorizes the order to be issued solely on the affidavit or testimony of the person requesting the restraining order.Existing law requires a manufacturer of a connected device to equip the device with a reasonable security feature or features that are appropriate to the nature and function of the device, appropriate to the information it may collect, contain, or transmit, and designed to protect the device and information contained in the device from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.This bill would, commencing January 1, 2026, require an account manager, as defined, to deny a person access to a connected device commencing no later than 2 days after a device protection request is submitted to the account manager, as provided, and would set forth the requirements on an account manager to make information about requests and the request process available. The bill would require a device protection request to include verification of the requester’s exclusive legal possession or control of the connected device, as specified, and identification of the connected device and the person that the requester seeks to deny access to. The bill would authorize an account manager to contact the requester or their representative to confirm that device access is denied or notify the requester that the request is incomplete. The bill would require an account manager and any officer, director, employee, vendor, or agent thereof to treat any information submitted as confidential and securely dispose of the information, as provided.This bill would, commencing January 1, 2026, require an account manager, as defined, to terminate or disable a covered device or account access to a perpetrator, as defined, commencing no later than 2 days after a device protection request is submitted to the account manager by a survivor of that perpetrator, and would specify the requirements for a survivor to submit a device protection request and the requirements that an account manager make the request available, subject to specified exceptions. By providing that a survivor may include a copy of a signed affidavit to submit a device protection request, and thus expanding the crime of perjury, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.This bill would require the account manager to notify the survivor of specified information and require an account manager and any officer, director, employee, vendor, or agent thereof to treat any information submitted by a survivor as confidential and securely dispose of the information, as provided.This bill would authorize enforcement of these provisions by injunction or civil penalty in any court action by any person injured by a violation of those provisions, the Attorney General, a district attorney, county counsel, a city attorney or a city prosecutor, against an account manager or perpetrator, as provided. The bill would prohibit a waiver of these prohibitions and would declare that these provisions are severable.Existing law authorizes a court to issue an ex parte order for, among other things, disturbing the peace of the other party. Existing law provides that disturbing the peace of the other party may be committed directly or indirectly, including through the use of a third party, and by any method or through any means including, but not limited to, telephone, online accounts, text messages, internet-connected devices, or other electronic technologies.This bill would provide that, for purposes of those provisions, an internet-connected device includes a connected device as described in the bill.Existing law establishes various privacy requirements applicable to vehicle manufacturers, including limitations on the usage of images or vid
