Reclusion Perpetua
Imagine, you bring your laptop to and from the office every day. On it you have sensitive work information, perhaps personal photos and correspondences, and your browsing his- tory. Imagine also that on your drive to work you get pulled over and the police have probable cause to search your vehicle. Can they flip open your laptop and begin browsing your work files? Your personal files? Your browsing history? Can they restore your deleted files and search those?

Now imagine they are looking for evidence of drug trafficking. Is there a limit to the types of files they may open? Can they open only spreadsheets or files with suspicious names, such as “heroinpro- ceeds.xls?” Can they look at your personal photos, or your browsing history? And, if they find evidence of a different crime, can they use it against you?

Let me know.
