"Google can reset the passcodes when served with a search warrant and an order instructing them to assist law enforcement to extract data from the device. This process can be done by Google remotely and allows forensic examiners to view the contents of a device."

Stay poor, pleborinos!

Turn off WiFi

No

>>51472035
google can't do shit about my phone because I never login to a google account. in fact, I don't even have a google account.
>>
>>51472035
>needing a proof

>>
>>51472242
why turn off WiFi?
>>
>>51472035
Can they do this if you use a custom rom?
>>
>>51472316
Can they do this on a CM based or on a AOSP ROM?
>>
holt shit so they know I have cp on my phone
>>51472316
i double this question
>>
You need to break law first. And I know how you'll do that you sick fuck! you'll deserve it.
>>
>>51472336
Most likely if you are using gapps
>>
>>51472429
Well, I'm trying to use as much of FOSS apps on my phone as possible, but I do have Play store, Google play services, etc.
>>
This only works if you have android device manager set as the phone's admin. Otherwise the cops can go fuck themselves in a fore.

Go to >settings >security >phone adminostrators and uncheck android device manager.

Problem is if you forget your passcode pattern you are shit out of luck, only a factory reset will unlock your device instead of a google account login.
>>
>>51472316
>>51472336
>>51472338

It's probably Play Services enabling that.

>>51472576
I'm not the only one who has always disabled that, right?

WEW that was close guys! The botnet almost won!
>>
>>51472576
If a nigger stole my Nexus 5 and I remote locked it, is it impossible to get into like the iPhones?
>>
>>51472681
Pretty much. It has to have the android device manager as a phone admin for this to work though.
>>
>>51472576
What passcode pattern are you talking about? I don't remeber setting up anything like that, ever. I've just disabled this, but I don't want to get locked out somehow.
>>
>>51472739
Honestly, I'd rather not let a nigger get an easy phone.
In this situation, I'd prefer the botnet, not because I like it but because it's the lesser evil.
>>
>>51472759
You should always have a pattern password enabled at all times in case jamal steals your phone. Better safe than sorry.
>>
>>51472873
Oh, ok. I'll keep that in mind.
>>
>>51472779
phones need an ability to password protect the bootloader (like password protecting the bios). though that would only work if you can't disable it with local access (which with a phone you always have, for obvious reasons). but then if you forget the password, you're shit out of luck
>>
>>51472948
>but then if you forget the password, you're shit out of luck
Precisely the reason it should never be implemented. Better to risk Jamal factory resetting your phone than to end up with a paperweight because your dumbass couldn't remember the 16-char bios password.
>>
>>51472991
You can still report the phone lost and they will black list the IMEI number. At least Jamal won't be able to activate the phone to call/text or get lte/3g ever.
>>
>>51472035
For the millionth time, the entire technology stack is compromised. All cellphones are botnet, dumb phones included. /thread
>>
>>51473643
>>51472035
Apple iPhones don't have this problem.
>>
>>51473675
shut up idiot
>>
>>51473675
Not this particular problem, but they are also compromised.

>conveniently leaving out the following paragraph:

"For Android devices running operating systems Lollipop 5.0 and above, however, Google plans to
use default full-disk encryption, like that being used by Apple, that will make it impossible for Google
to comply with search warrants and orders instructing them to assist with device data extraction."

>>51473742
>FDE on a device that is practically always on
Talk about placebo.
>>
>>51473804
When the 5-0 is banging on your door, just rip out the bat--- oh.
>>
>>51473822
You'd get slapped with obstruction of justice if you turned off your phone or ripped out the (un)removeable battery upon apprehension. A charge that carries heavy penalties I might add.
>>
>>51473742
it never did become a default setting though
>>
>>51474045
To be fair, Google did ditch the
>Don't be evil
slogan.
>>
>>51474045
It did in the Nexus 6, but people disabled it because they lost some performance.
>>
>>51473941
armchair-lawyer amirite?
>>
>using gapps

You deserves it.
>>
>>51474045
It has now. Google requires manufacturers to enable encryption on phones that are deemed powerful enough.

Unless they backtracked on it AGAIN.
>>
>>51474762
Can't spell gapps without gap. Google status: full'o'holes.
>>
All mobile devices are backdoored. How new are you guys?

In other news
>Windows 10 is a botnet
>OEM automotive GPS is backdoored
>Intel and AMD firmware are backdoored
>Your driver's license photo is stored in a government database

Number 5 will S H O C K you.
>>
>>51474632

He's almost correct. It's tampering with evidence, rather than obstruction.
