Yeah, the Cops Can Force Your Finger Onto a Suspect’s iPhone

FYI: Yeah, the cops can force your finger onto a suspect’s iPhone to see if it unlocks, says judge

Analysis A US judge gave the cops permission to force people’s fingers onto seized iPhones to see who could unlock them, a newly unsealed search warrant has revealed. Specifically, Judge Judith Dein, of the federal district court of Massachusetts, gave agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) the right to press Robert Brito-Pina’s fingers on any iPhone found in his apartment in Boston.
