    SCOTUS Hearing Case on Whether or Not Gov’t Can Track Your Phone


    Should government investigators be able to see exactly where you’ve been at every moment, without a warrant?

    That’s the important privacy question that the U.S. Supreme Court is tackling later this month, and it could affect everyone who has a cell phone.

    At the center of the debate are two opposing sides. Law enforcement agencies insist that cell tower records are fair game, and that they don’t need any type of warrant to access that treasure trove of data.

    On the other hand, privacy advocates are crying foul, and claiming that using tower data without a warrant is a breach of Fourth Amendment constitutional rights against unreasonable searches.
