1. Are the police entitled to take my phone?
If a police officer asks you to give him/her your phone, don’t do it! Unless he or she has a warrant, they don’t have the right to look through your phone. The same applies if you’re in custody. This law was actually put into place after the landmark Riley v. California case back in 2014.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. said that “the contents found in someone’s phone can’t itself be used as a weapon in order to arrest or harm someone.” So, if a police officer asks you for your phone, it’s your right to keep it in your pockets. The police officer should hand you a warrant regarding this matter.
