Wireless data tracking case to decide if US citizens have privacy rights

Julia Ticona

D&S postdoctoral scholar Julia Ticona argues that cell phones aren’t voluntary and that people should obtain a warrant to investigate someone’s cell data.

“Indeed, ‘cell phones have become part of the basic social infrastructure,’ vital to public safety, job hunting, scheduling work, accessing information and socialising on the internet, Julia Ticona, postdoctoral scholar at the Data & Society Research Institute, told reporters, voicing concern that low income, more vulnerable people who rely heavily on smartphones for internet access might be more adversely affected by government overreach.”
