Christmas Comes Early for Law Enforcement

Google can remotely bypass the passcode of at least 74% of Android devices if ordered by Ben Woods.

From the post:

According to a document prepared by the New York District Attorney’s Office, older versions of Android can easily be remotely reset by Google if compelled by a court order, allowing investigators to easily view the contents of a device.

Ben reports that:

74.1 percent of devices are still using a version of Android that can be remotely accessed at any time.

I want a box of burner phones for Christmas, along with an electromagnet powerful enough to down the motor in a refrigerator.

The trick will be to be standing next to the electromagnet when unfriendly visitors arrive. 😉
