Long-Secret Stingray Manuals Detail How Police Can Spy on Phones
HARRIS CORP.’S STINGRAY surveillance device has been one of the most closely guarded secrets in law enforcement for more than 15 years. The company and its police clients across the United States have fought to keep information about the mobile phone-monitoring boxes from the public against which they are used. The Intercept has obtained several Harris instruction manuals spanning roughly 200 pages and meticulously detailing how to create a cellular surveillance dragnet.

Local law enforcement deploying fake base stations for tracking, eavesdropping - FierceWirelessTech
"Fake base stations have been used by the federal government for years but now have been adopted by local law enforcement agencies, and privacy advocates are not happy about it." "When one of these types of devices is deployed correctly, every smartphone or portable computer served by a particular cellular network in a given area will recognize the stingray as just another cell site on that network, automatically connecting to it. The fake cell site can then gather information about those devices and the locations of their users."
