In light of society's increasing reliance on technology, this article explores a critical question – that of the Fourth Amendment’s protection over privacy in the digital age. Specifically, this article addresses how the law currently fails to protect the privacy of one’s cell phone records and its ramifications.

Davis, this article calls on the judiciary to find a more appropriate balance for protecting the right to privacy in a modern society.
