Will suck every last byte of data out of a seized cellphone

Review by Nathan Wessler

Staff Attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project

This device is a favorite of police departments everywhere. It’ll suck every last byte of data out of a seized cellphone in less time than it takes to read the Bill of Rights. Just remember what the Supreme Court said in 2014, though: If you’re searching the contents of a cellphone, “get a warrant.”
