… Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill that bans the use of “stingrays” to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant in most situations. The new law will not only protect privacy in Arizona, but will also hinder one aspect of the federal surveillance state.

Sen. Bob Worsley (R-Mesa) introduced Senate bill 1342 (SB1342) back in January. The legislation will help block the use of cell site simulators, known as “stingrays.” These devices essentially spoof cell phone towers, tricking any device within range into connecting to the stingray instead of the tower, allowing law enforcement to sweep up communications content, as well as locate and track the person in possession of a specific phone or other electronic device.
