Authorities Are Using A "Mysterious New Tool" That Can Unlock Virtually Any Cellphone

in #policestate6 years ago

Your cellphone is a treasure trove of information about you. It tells where you have been, who you were talking to, and what interests you have.

And now it is coming to light that authorities have a tool to access any cell phone in the United States.

Law enforcement agencies are using a mysterious new tool to unlock the cellphones of criminal suspects and access their text messages, emails and voice messages. Some agencies around the country, concerned about security, are not even acknowledging use of the devices.

For lovers of freedom, this is some very disturbing stuff.

Sigh. No such thing as privacy anymore.
