"Keyword search warrants"? *Eep*

I knew about (and don’t like) geofence warrants.

Keyword search warrants are new, though. Emphasis mine.

In other words, with reverse search warrants law enforcement is still looking for their suspect and they’re asking tech companies to give them a list of people to investigate. For geofence warrants, anyone in a certain place at a certain time becomes a suspect and is subject to further investigation which could mean giving police even more of their user data. For keyword search warrants, another relatively new mechanism to obtain user information that has emerged, anyone who searched for a certain phrase or address becomes a suspect.

I suppose Duck Duck Go through Tor, maybe? o.O

sigh And the internet gets yet more user-hostile.
