US Customs and Border Protection wants to ask for your "online presence" at the border

This week, the US CBP published a notice in the Federal Register proposing a change to the Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record paperwork that visitors to the US fill out when they cross the border, in which they announce plans to ask travelers to “please enter information associated with your online presence.”

The form element will be optional, but of course, CBP screeners may subject travellers who decline to reveal their online names for additional scrutiny.

Visitors to the USA are already photographed, fingerprinted, and interviewed.
