    Certainly saving the data afterwards…

    Agree that retaining it is not necessary if it is not relevant.

    Still, nothing to worry about if you are not guilty of anything…..

    I do follow that rule in general but I’ve seen things that have changed my mind on that, I’m no longer so comfy with it.

    Me neither. My phone is a work phone and contains a lot of client sensitive information.

    What’s also interesting is that it’s not just the owner of the phone that is compromised in this situation, there is the data of a whole lot of other people being exposed. Smart phones make this rule a massively complex issue.

    A reasonable response to this kind of state activity would be routine encryption of your phone data, regardless or not of whether you ‘had something to hide’. Can you get an app for that?

    We would all do well to remeber the words of Martin Niehmoller:-

    First they came for the Communists,
    and I didn’t speak up,
    because I wasn’t a Communist.
    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak up,
    because I wasn’t a Jew.
    Then they came for the Catholics,
    and I didn’t speak up,
    because I was a Protestant.
    Then they came for me,
    and by that time there was no one
    left to speak up for me.

    Nuff said

    mine is too, automatically locks with a pin after 30s, wipes after a number of unsuccessful attempts and can be remotely wiped.
