Do you bring a different phone/laptop with you when you travel abroad? I've heard of some people bringing cleaned laptops with them to China because they're afraid of sensitive work material being stolen, but now you have to do the same thing in the US? Wtf?
>All the security in the world can’t save you if someone has physical possession of your phone or laptop, and can intimidate you into giving up your password.
>And a few weeks ago, that’s precisely what happened to a US citizen returning home from abroad.
>On January 30th, Sidd Bikkannavar, a US-born scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory flew back to Houston, Texas from Santiago, Chile.
>On his way through through the airport, Customs and Border Patrol agents pulled him aside. They searched him, then detained him in a room with a bunch of other people sleeping in cots. They eventually returned and said they’d release him if he told them the password to unlock his phone.
>Bikkannavar explained that the phone belonged to NASA and had sensitive information on it, but his pleas fell on deaf ears. He eventually yielded and unlocked his phone. The agents left with his phone. Half an hour later, they returned, handed him his phone, and released him.
