Court Says Police Can’t Track Your Cell Without Warrant

googletracking For the last few months I have been hearing about how your cell is no longer safe from prying eyes. This includes border control and police officers who can browse your device if it is in plain sight. It was nice to see that there are still some limits when I read this article on Arstechnica.

Turns out that a federal district court judge in Pennsylvania affirmed that police need probable cause before a wireless carrier must hand over geographic data. A very interesting read and analysis by Julian Sanchez can be found on Arstechnica.

Score one for the privacy team!

  1. Yeah, thats the regular city and county police. I’m sure FBI and CIA and such don’t really care and track everyone’s phone anyway. Big Brother is watching! *crazy laugh*
