(Bloomberg, By Lulu Yilun Chen, Fion Li, and Steven Yang) Hong Kongers attempting to travel to mainland China are being asked to unlock their smartphones for examination by Chinese agents along the border. The officials are reportedly searching texts, social media accounts, and photos for images, texts, and discussions of Hong Kong's ongoing protests. Travelers have responded by only carrying old or wiped devices when traveling into China in order to avoid scrutiny. <Accessed 2019-08-17>
