Travelling is becoming more and more scary in unexpected ways. If you carry an empty phone that you plan to restore on destination they'll probably retain you for questioning -what are you hiding if you're innocent, etc. If you give in you thinking you have nothing to hide from your social media/internet presence you could still be compromising people in your circles who dissent in any of a number of ways and express that dissent on Facebook or platforms like this one, thinking they're safely talking to friends-only....

Not just holiday. This is a potentially huge problem for anybody who has business or otherwise confidential material that they might carry with them. Advice I've had from work (to protect students' data, exam papers, and more) is to have a clean device to use for traveling to certain countries.

This does have some interesting knock on effects that I am currently experiencing, but most of what I do is so wired anyway that remote access is usually an option.

If the 'laptop ban' gets applied to Europe then there'll be plenty of reasons to mot carry a laptop or tablet with you. Before that, it might be considered suspicious.
