Judge Rules FBI Cannot View your Phone’s Lock Screen Without a Warrant

A District Court Judge has ruled that the FBI broke the law when it switched on a suspect’s phone to look at his lock screen without first obtaining a warrant.

The Judge ruled that gathering evidence from a lock screen constitutes a search, and doing that without a warrant violates the fourth amendment, which prohibits unreasonable search seizure.
