We all know that when we enter the US, the computers and phones we carry are subject to search without a warrant. Don’t we?
“Lawsuit Targets Phone Seizures,” The Wall Street Journal, September 14, 2017 A5. Customs screenings at border aren’t subject to same controls as when you are already here. [NB: Same rules apply when going into another country. They can demand your password to make sure you don’t have porn on your phone. Or whatever.]
Does this shock you? Is this a control over your information or a limit on your autonomy?
