Finger print phone locks are a mayor weakness on anyone’s life if traveling somewhere that can expose you to an unfriendly group that might get a hold of you and pressure you in to unlocking the phone for them so they can exploit all the information on it. Stick to pass codes and try to keep phones clean of personal information.

Burner phones, travel phones, bla bla bla.. what ever cool name you want to give them. Just get a phone specifically meant for travel and keep it completely detached from your personal life, social media or anything that can be used to mine information about you and your family. Make some fake business cards with the phone number your using while you’re at it. Porn Historian, Taco Expert… What ever. Find something that fits and layer your self with the warm blanket of misdirection. Basically be harder to fuck with that the next guy.

Stillness is death.-
