In law enforcement bodies of the USA have spread the practice of using fingerprints dead people suspected of committing a crime to unlock their iPhone with the aim of seizure of evidence. Reported by Forbes, citing American intelligence officials, who requested anonymity.
As a rule, told the interlocutors of Forbes, this practice is applied in the investigation of cases of death provoked by a drug overdose. Often the ability to perform the correspondence of the victim leads to a distribution of prohibited substances, allowing you to bring him to justice.
If we ignore the ethical issue, the use of the imprint of the deceased in no way violates his rights, says Marina Medwin, head of the law firm Medwin Law. According to her, at the moment of death a person loses his personality and, as a consequence, can no longer be responsible before the law and to demand protection of their interests.
With the position of Mrs. Medwin agree detective police Department for Ohio Robert Retsol. “We don’t need a search warrant to access the contents of the smartphone of the victim, unless [the smartphone] is not public property or belongs by right of ownership to someone else,” says Resol.
In the Russian legislation does not contain clear rules that prevent the carrying out of such manipulations. The right of citizens to protection of information about private life, though enshrined in the Constitution and after their death passes to children, parents and surviving spouses may still be limited by the court.
Practice shows that to unlock the phone with Face ID even easier. It’s enough to create a plaster mask and to finish her eyes. Otherwise you can contact the companies that are always ready to help in the penetration of the contents of the smartphone criminal for 15 000-30 000 dollars.
