The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that they will be boosting their security measures by requiring all carry-on electronics larger than a cellphone to be screened separately at the airport. This new procedure will go into effect in all U.S. airports and will apply to devices like iPads, tablets, e-readers, and more.
TSA decided to take this measure in order to increase aviation security because the Department of Homeland Security is worried about illegal contraband or even bombs being hidden within these devices.
These electronics, just like a laptop, must now be placed in a separate bin with nothing on top or below them. So if you have more than one large electronic device, prepare for security to take a little longer than usual.
However, whether TSA agents can conduct a forensic examination on these devices without probable cause or reasonable suspicion is still unclear. Some Circuit courts allow for random forensic examinations and some require reasonable suspicion. Therefore, if your device is taken from you for a forensic examination and you feel your rights have been violated, feel free to give us at Wildes & Weinberg a call and we will advise your next steps.
For now, if you are eligible, you can avoid this new measure by signing up for TSA Pre-Check, where the screening process goes much quicker!
