The German government approved a new online hate speech law.

It would require social media platforms to "proactively report illegal content," reports POLITICO, including far-right propaganda and violent threats.

According to AFP, in cases of terrorism and murder, networks will be required to provide the authorities with users' passwords.

The law needs to pass Germany's parliament before it's enacted. POLITICO did not report what the penalties would be for social media platforms that didn't comply.
