ACLU Obtains Cell Phone Tracking Training Materials 33

guttentag writes "The New York Times has published a large collection of law enforcement training documents obtained by the ACLU. The documents describe in detail what kind of information can be obtained from cell phones and cell phone carriers, and how to obtain it. The 189-page PDF also contains dozens of invoices from the major carriers for their services to law enforcement that describe the fees for those services."

    If you look at all of the redactions from the invoices from cell companies (at the end), you'll notice that a few times names and emails are NOT redacted. Someone screwed up.

    "something you can't do with a apple device strangely enough :P"

    Much more secure than removing the battery when there might be a small hidden battery
    in the phone which defeats such measures, is this :

    Get three foil-lined bags of the type used to contain potato chips.
    Insert one bag inside the next, so you end up with the innermost bag
    covered with two more bags.

    Then insert the phone into the innermost bag, and fold over the openings of all three bags so the bag
    is closed tightly. The phone will not be able to send or receive signals until it is removed from the foil bags.

    You're welcome.
