Time to clear out anything from your private texts that you don’t want anyone to see if you’re in CA. The Supreme Court has declared that it is now legal to include your SMS messages in the list of things that can be checked without a warrant. The ruling states that your missives folder is now part of your “incidentals”, which also includes your pockets or bags, and can be checked without reason.

Never before has it been possible to carry so much personal or business information in one’s pocket or purse.
