EFF's “Know Your Digital Rights” guide for the 21st century

Over the last five years smart phones and tablet computers have become must-have pieces of technology that contain a frightening and profound amount of personal information. What many people don’t realize, however, is the amount of sensitive data that these devices carry and the importance of protecting yourself from the prying eyes of others — especially The Man. The Electronic Frontier Foundation’s new “Know Your Digital Rights” campaign is a must-read for everyone in the 21st century as they explain your rights when it comes to searches of your phone, computer, laptop and other devices.
