  1. https://9to5mac.com/2022/04/29/cellebrite-iphone-cracking/ Cellebrite iPhone cracking kit allows the company’s clients to access virtually all of the private data stored on a phone – in some cases, even if the phone is locked. But the exact capabilities depend on both the model of the iPhone and the version of iOS it is running. We managed to get access to the user documentation for a recent version of the kit to see what it can do …

  3. Charity says a search warrant should be obtained before using tool to extract information from the phones of suspects, witnesses and victims. An urgent review must be conducted into the use of a policing tool, which can pull data from mobile phones without the user knowing, a charity says. At least 26 forces are using data extraction tools, such as Cellebrite, with a further eight trialing or intending to trial the technology. It enables police to extract information from the phones of those convicted of no crime, witnesses and victims, according to Privacy International. According to the charity, forces are acting without clear safeguards for the public, and no independent oversight to identify abuse and misuse of sensitive personal information, which creates blurred lines over whether the use of the software is lawful. It should also be a mandatory requirement for police to obtain a warrant for searching the contents of a mobile phone, issued on the basis of reasonable suspicion, it added. There are additional concerns over the retention of information and it says there should be regulations over how long obtained data can be held before being deleted, especially if the suspect is innocent. Camilla Graham Wood, solicitor for Privacy International, says one of her main concerns following the research was that forces had insufficient knowledge of the tool and its legalities, which is being “used under the radar.” Ms Wood adds police cannot restrict the certain types of data, so if detectives were searching for a particular text message from a specific date, the tool is unable to single this out, thus retrieving every message. It is now calling for an immediate independent review by the Home Office, the College of Policing and police and crime commissioners, with widespread consultation with the public. Ms Wood said: “It is disturbing the police have such a highly draconian power, operating in secret, without any accountability to the public. “Given the serious problems we still face in the UK with discriminatory policing, we need to urgently address how this new frontier of policing might be disproportionately and unfairly impacting on minority ethnic groups, political demonstrators, environmental activists and many other groups that can find themselves in the crosshairs of the police. “The police are continually failing to be transparent with the thousands of people whose phones they are secretly downloading data from.” The report has received support from David Lammy, MP for Tottenham. "The lack of transparency around new policing tools such as mobile phone extraction is a serious cause for concern. There are no records, no statistics, no safeguards, no oversight and no clear statement of the rights that citizens have if their mobile phone is confiscated and searched by the police,” he said. “Without the collection and audit of data about the use of mobile phone extraction powers scrutiny will be impossible. “Given the sensitive nature and wealth of information stored on our mobile phones there is significant risk of abuse and for conscious or unconscious bias to become a factor without independent scrutiny and in the absence of effective legal safeguards. “We entrust so much personal information to our phones that the police having the power to download every message and photo we have sent or received without any rights and protections is another worrying example of regulations not keeping up with advances in technology." A spokesman for the Home Office said it was important for police officers to have "the appropriate powers to tackle crime". "Current legislation allows data to be accessed when there are reasonable grounds to believe it contains evidence in relation to an offence and only then in adherence with data protection and human rights obligations. "The government is clear that the use of all police powers must be necessary, proportionate and lawful." View On Police Oracle
