Supreme Court rules that police require warrant to access one’s cell phone location history

Digital privacy is a huge topic right now, since many of our privacy laws don’t directly apply to the digital world. But the Supreme Court of the United States made a major ruling on the security of your location history.

The 5-4 ruling concluded that law enforcement will need a warrant to access your location history, as free access to this data would be a violation of the fourth amendment. This does not apply to real time location, but your location history will be safe.
