I am getting ready to travel internationally in a few weeks. I have concerns about bringing my phone and laptop with me due to you having almost zero rights to privacy at customs (Including US customs) and that they can force you to turn on your phone, and unlock it. Furthermore, I’ve read that they can also remove the your electronics from your sight, bring it to another room, and can only imagine what they’re doing. Any advice you can lend on your recommendations for international travel?

I see that Firefox now supports 2FA, what does this mean, and should I enable it?
