Hello everyone! Contradictory news continue to spread the internet and I am lost in them all now, so please tell me this thing: does US police need no warrants now to track my mobile phone?

Hi Spencer!

In fact, not exactly and not everywhere. There are really many sources of information on this topic so it is hard to not get lost among them and differ truth from lies. So let me explain you things I am sure about and make it as clear as possible for you regarding all that concerns warrantless tracking of your cell phone by police and other law enforcement agencies.

It has started long ago and now many sides of the conflict have different opinions on this matter. For example, warrantless car GPS tracking is performed in many US states and according to the courts it is legal. Did they forgot about 4th Amendment or what?! I don't know how you feel about it, but I want to scream and shout with anger...

Now let's get back to the phones. This may become a surprise for you, but CTIA supports warrantless mobile phone tracking telling that it will be too burdensome for mobile phone operators to get a warrant every time police needs to track someone's movement. Can you believe it?! The only thing that makes me a little bit calmer is the fact that some states have opposed this lawlessness - Hawaii, Kansas and Kentucky have started to implement the laws which require police to gain warrant before asking mobile phone operator to grant them cell phone location data.

So if you live not in one of those three states I have mentioned and want to make sure that no one will track your location without an appropriate warrant - you can prevent warrantless police tracking of your mobile phone and make your life safer in that way.
