There was some case in the US not so long ago where the FBI had a dispute with Apple over this. Dont know if it was resolved but I dont think even Apple could get into some of their phones on their customers behalf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FBI–Apple_encryption_disputeThe Police always seem to be able to get into a laptop on TV shows easily enough so enough said BUT as I understand it is not at all easy to get into an Android phone without the password. People get fined in court over here for not giving up their password so presume that only the FBI and suchlike can get in with a bit of bother?
I reckon most stuff is stored in the cloud these days anyway. Thats probably where the security needs concentrating.
