Le refus de communiquer le code de déverrouillage d’un téléphone portable peut constituer un délit, juge la Cour de cassation
L’instance était appelée à se prononcer sur une affaire de trafic de stupéfiants dans laquelle une cour d’appel avait relaxé un suspect qui avait refusé de donner le code de déverrouillage de ses deux téléphones, malgré la jurisprudence de la Cour de cassation.

Here is FreedomLand1.0 (United States) you are only forced to give up biometric passwords. Typed passwords are still protected.

Which… Better than nothing I guess.

Is there a translated version available? I only speak English and Norwegian.

Something about people who sale drugs must provide their phone password. I guess I’m not going to die if someone drops me in the middle of France.

You know all the laws of France, and know you haven’t broken them? Damn, I’ll call you instead of a lawyer next time

LOL 😎 😎! Coolio!

They’ll hold you in jail until you provide it or can bribe them enough to let you go. Often they will take your finger and put it on the biometrics to unlock without yourconsent. This is why phones really need print+pin it drives me bananas that isn’t possible. If that doesn’t work they can just keep your phone as evidence if theres an open case against you, which they’ll probably do anyway.

I’m speaking to my experience in the USA but I’m sure French cops are just as shitty.

I’ve also wanted something like this but afaict the only way to do it would be to run everything with sensitive data in a guest profile (on android), however call/text history is controlled by the main profile, even if you’re using voip apps. I could be wrong as i have only tried doing this with google voice in a guest profile but phone calls do not work unless you enable voice/sms permissions in the main profile (on grapheneOS). I’m sure iOS is even more restricted when it comes to something like this.

I think the only real option for security measures like this would be to use some native linux phone like postmarket or something and write your own lockscreen.

There is an open issue/feature request for two factor unlock in graphene, but it’s a big job and they’re lacking developers. https://github.com/GrapheneOS/os-issue-tracker/issues/28

Of course the best option would be to not have any sensitive info on your device, but that’s pretty much impossible these days.

I had a sergeant in the Army who once told me: “you’ll only get in trouble if you’re caught.”

not knowing a password isn’t not knowing the law that requires you to know the password
