Apple and Google help police bypass iPhone, Android lock screens

According to this report, Apple and Google help police bypass iPhone and Android lock screens on seized mobile phones — all done by a “fill-in-the-blanks” court order document. With a judge’s signature on the document, police can sift through the phones’ information once all is filled out.

While both companies are willing to help the police, Android phones are a bit more difficult to gain access, as the only way is to “unlock the phone is to have the Gmail user name and password.” But this won’t stop the police once a judge’s approval is down on ink, Google can be required to ”resets the password and further provides the reset password to law enforcement.”

Due to court order both Apple and Google have to comply — they really don’t have much choice. It is possible, however, to bypass the phones’ security without document signatures — though questionable if that is legal or not. There is even a video that popped up a couple weeks ago by Micro Systemation demonstrating its XRY forensics software which can bypass most iOS device pass codes.

Like locks on house doors, it only keeps honest people out.
