Do you know if you’re required to give your phone password if asked by a border agent? Do you know how to protect personal information on your phone?
Our friends at BCCLA and CIPPIC have created a guide to help you know your rights: download it here.
The guide is available in English, French, Mandarin, Punjabi, Tagalog, Spanish, and Arabic.
