Submission + - Homeland Security Changes Laptop Search Policy (physorg.com) 2

IronicToo writes: "The US Government has updated its policy on the search and seizure of laptops at border crossing.

The long-criticized practice of searching travelers' electronic devices will continue, but a supervisor now would need to approve holding a device for more than five days. Any copies of information taken from travelers' machines would be destroyed within days if there were no legal reason to hold the information.
