2015 The Year Privacy Died

Clickaholics ready affiliatesAre you a traveler – border crossing or flying
international? Carrying a smart phone?

The CBC reports: “A Quebec man charged with obstructing border officials by refusing to give up his smartphone password says he will fight the charge.”

Philippon had arrived in Halifax on a
flight from Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

He’s been charged under section 153.1 (b) of the
Customs Act for hindering or preventing border
officers from performing their role under the act.

According to the CBSA, the minimum fine for the
offense is $1,000, with a maximum fine of $25,000
and the possibility of a year in jail.

This law has not been tested in this case, so it
should be a good one to watch.

The CBSA wouldn’t say why Philippon was selected
for a smartphone search.

While the law will fight for his rights and vice versa,
there is a question of what you keep on smart phones
from the one side of the issue, and the real time
terrorist suspicions we all need to be sharp about.

Privacy is one side of the coin. But it also strikes
me that if you give up your password in any case,
once you are over the border, or finished with the
reason for giving it up, change it!

That’s when you move from the requirements of
their security to yours.

Till next time …

    From what I have been reading and understand anything with the “smart” label has an implant in it to spy on people. That includes your web camera, monitor, etc. I suppose it isn’t such a good idea to work on your computer in your underwear anymore.
