Know Your Cellphone Rights While Protesting

EFFThe EFF, Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world, has recently updated its cell phone guide for protesters. People want to be able to communicate, to document the protests, and to share photos and video with the world. So they’ll be carrying phones, and they’ll face a complex set of considerations about the privacy of the data those phones hold. We hope this guide can help answer some questions about how to best protect that data, and what rights protesters have in the face of police demands. Read it here. Its also good general advice to everyone even if you don’t plan on attending a protest.
