TSA can't confiscate laptops or ask for passwords (1)

P1h3r1e3d13 (1158845) | more than 6 years ago | (#22375246)

From the TSA's blog (http://www.tsa.gov/blog/2008/02/rumor-alert-laptops.html [tsa.gov] ):

TSA does not and will not confiscate laptops or other electronic devices at our checkpoints.... We will not ask for any password, access to any files or take the laptop from you for longer than it takes to determine if it contains a threat. Should anyone at a TSA checkpoint attempt to confiscate your laptop or gain your passwords or other information, please ask to see a supervisor or screening manager immediately.
That's TSA policy folks.
