Protecting Against Unlawful Seizure of Your Cellphone (Cecilia Hentkowski)



The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

While the Fourth Amendment is well known by the vast majority of people in the U.S., many citizens still do not fully understand their rights pertaining to this protection when it comes to their personal phones and other digital devices, whether it be at a routine traffic stop, arrest, and/or search warrant.


This site aims to provide citizens with factual information pertaining to their rights when it comes to cellphones, other mobile/digital devices, and digital evidence.

While I believe it is important to always exercise your constitutional rights, I would also like emphasize the importance of always complying with law enforcement in any given scenario.


I would like to state for the record, that the information provided on my blogs contain 10% – my opinion and 90% – facts (provided from actual law and from both scholar and professional research/publications). When my opinion is being given it will be clearly stated as such, so as to not confuse the reader into believing it is factual.
