You Have No Privacy
When last we wrote about your privacy rights when entering the U.S. of A., the news was this: "Travelers, businesses, and advocacy groups are pushing back against government searches of laptops at US border crossings."
So much for pushback. The Washington Post reports:
Federal agents may take a traveler's laptop computer or other electronic device to an off-site location for an unspecified period of time without any suspicion of wrongdoing, as part of border search policies the Department of Homeland Security recently disclosed.
Also, officials may share copies of the laptop's contents with other agencies and private entities for language translation, data decryption or other reasons, according to the policies, dated July 16 and issued by two DHS agencies, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Seems like the best advice came in our first post on the subject: "Delete everything you don't absolutely need."
