Hawaii Bill Would Prohibit Warrantless Stingray Spying, Hinder Federal Surveillance Program

HONOLULU, Hawaii (Jan. 26, 2018) – A bill introduced in the Hawaii Senate would ban the use of “stingrays” to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant in most situations. The proposed law would not only protect privacy in Hawaii, but would also hinder one aspect of the federal surveillance state.
