    but read everything posted publicly

    No password is required to read anything I've ever published publicly. Hochul and company want those passwords to all accounts. They obviously don't want to read only what I've published - they want to dig into private communications as well. They want to see who I've friended, who I've unfriended, who I've followed, who I've liked and disliked, probably my reading history, groups I've approved of, etc ad nauseum.

    Handing over the passwords to all of your accounts amounts to handing over your diary or journal. There is a lot of private information contained in your account that should be private, and require a warrant before government can access it.

    Worse, if you're smart enough to not have social media accounts, you'll be denied your rights, based on that alone?
