Sent text messages not private: ruling

TEXT MESSAGES ARE NOT PRIVATE – You may intend text messages to be private and police may need a warrant to search your phone but the “Ontario Court of Appeal has ruled that sent text messages seized from a recipient’s phone can be used as evidence against the sender in court.” You lose the aspect of privacy once they are received. This puts them on the same footing as posts to public social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. On to the Supreme Court of Canada to sort this out.
