Comparitech has developed a scoring system to find the states with the most online data protection laws. The system was based on 14 different laws, including laws to protect internet-of-things data, safeguard employee and children’s privacy, and mandate data retention time limits. Delaware scored the highest out of all 50 states, with a privacy score of 85.7 percent, only missing two of the 14 criteria. California finished with the second best score, with 78.6 percent, while Utah and Arkansas tied for third with 71.4 percent. There was a three-way tie for the worst states for online privacy, with Wyoming, South Dakota and Alabama all finishing with a 28.6 percent score.
