    I've been searched (including my car) while driving without a warrant or a reason before. Police also read messages from my cousins iPhone due to the notification lock screen messages. I don't think the cops should have the right to search your car, home or cell phone, without a warrant or reasonable cause but you know what if they really want to they will do it anyways.
    That sucks!! I hate you had to go through that

    Dear god, please tell me this isn't a thing in the States?

    There is no way on this green earth I would give anyone the passwords for my phone. If it is a minor traffic stop and doesn't relate to any kind of perceived cellphone use whilst driving (illegal in the UK, not sure about the USA) then they can Foxtrot Oscar.
    There are a lot of states in the USA that prohibit driving while talking on a cell phone. Arkansas recently passed a hands free law but I was talking to a cop last night while driving and a state trooper got behind me and followed me the whole way home but didn't do anything. I usually use my earphones that came with my phone when I'm driving but I forgot them at home yesterday.

    As for the cops searching my phone, I don't care. I have nothing to hide. Search my car. Search my phone. I don't care.

    If they're trying to prove texting while driving, I don't text and drive for obvious reasons.

    It seriously has nothing to do with what you do not have to hide or not but your right to privacy. Your cell phone contains important and sensitive information and is part of you and should be protected under the law as such as much as any other property. A warrant is a must if a cell phone is to be seized and ordered searched.

    I wouldn't unlock it if I had a pass code. No reason to.

    Well I never heard of this happening in canada (Toronto) but supposedly I heard a police can ask to check your phone at anytime if they feel that they need to, which I disagree with because for most people a persons phone is their privacy and police shouldn't have that right to invade people's privacy specially if it's for no reason

    With the technological advancement of cellphone they are no longer just used in making and receiving phone calls and text messages. They have the capacity to hold enormous amounts of data that you as a cellphone owner have taken responsible steps either required by your employer or by yourself to password protect.

    To give your password unwillingly against your better judgement is a violation of your right to privacy.

    The ruling today puts a cellphone and it's contents under the protection of the 4th amendment protection against unlawful search and seizure.
