    I may not be selling or buying weed but I definitely don't want you looking through pictures of my gf on my phone or reading emails between myself and clients from work and viewing their financial data, etc.

    I hope jailbreakers next focus is protecting phones from the cellebrite ufed because once cops get ahold of that, nothing will be private.
    You fail to realize apple nor anyone else cannot view your recent nudes from your girlfriend or view your email which probably contains the latest office scandal between you and your clients unless they have physical access to your device. Still paranoid? Get lockdown pro.

    My ex-girlfriend's boyfriend have threatened me many times before, even her best friend hears him say such things. He is a psycho and my ex always compares me with him, that is why he is so pissed.
    Your ex is the psycho, for using your replacement as a weapon against you.
    She obviously has little respect for him either.

    I'm sure you responded without fully realizing what I was referring to. I'm talking about the Cellebrite UFED device that does 1000x more data collecting than what Apple is doing and how that is an invasion of privacy if we're not doing something illegal not what Apple is doing which is no more than what AT&T could do if they decided to go back and see your movements.

    I don't have a problem with what Apple is doing because it I don't like it then I just get untrackerd and it's no big deal. What I don't like is having my phone contents duplicated on a flash drive by a cop who pulled me over for a tail light bulb that burned out. If this is already happening in Michigan then I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it starts happening nationwide. Nothing you can do about protecting your data once it is out there just like what someone else said but if the person doing the collecting is doing it under less than ethical pretenses because nobody will do anything to stop them then that is where I draw the line.

    No office scandals at all so obviously in my email, just clients' financial information that is not to be released to some random law enforcement officer on a power trip with a new investigative toy. The gf nudes...well that's a different subject altogether haha

    Does lockdown pro actually prevent forensic devices from obtaining access or merely make it more difficult?

    From the description it looks like it doesn't actually prevent outside access to the device, just access to the apps once someone has the device and is attempting to access things from the device itself.

    Thanks for the suggestion anyway though

    They're already doing it. I'm sure if it keeps going the way it is and spreads then there will be lawsuits over it. My problem with it is you can't unring a bell. Once that information is on the internet, it's there forever.

    Lol so many have argued with me that you sign terms agreements, contracts, it then binds you to what ever a company does, illegal, unethical, what ever you agreed. Sometimes I wonder how old some people are who post here, I outgrew such thinking after 8th grade.

    Good thing 12 year olds don't run the world..........

    Simple passcodes are easy to crack unless you're not using a simple passcode.

    Why? That's stupid...if it wipes itself then you're just giving the person a new iPhone!

    He's doing that anyway.
    I think it's much more likely it'll come back to bite the owner in the *****.

    You gotta be pretty angry to think like that.
    I don't even have mine passworded. I keep it insured instead.
