Is it illegal to open someone's smartphone without their consent; waiting, until, they fall asleep, and, then, using the phone's "fingerprint recognition" software, gain access to (steal), information, they would not otherwise, be privy too... And, in addition, send text and email mgs., as if they were the owner?

Are you located in the U.S? If so, in what state do you reside?

None of what you describe would be legal.

What does your question have to do with legal ethics or lawyer malpractice?

Q1: Are you located in the U.S?
A: yes

Q2: If so, in what state do you reside?
A: Dc/Md/ Va Area

Q3: What does your question have to do with legal ethics or lawyer malpractice?
A: I, had a legal question to ask... And, maybe, I submitted the queston, to, the wrong audience. If I've offended, it was not intentional.

Not wrong audience. Not offended. Just wrong forum placement for your thread. :)

What is the name of your state?

Q: What is the name of your state?
A: Wash., DC, and, Maryland
Q: Under what "forum placement" should I have submitted?
Q: So a case such as that, would be actionable?

What exact state are you in? There are different laws for different states...giving the general area of the US won't help.

Possibly.

Whether what you describe is worth pursuing legally depends on the specific state, the information stolen, what messages were sent (and to whom and why) ..

But accessing someone's electronic device without authorization (or exceeding any authorization that was granted) is generally considered a computer crime.

Did you want to provide details?

Does this involve you? In which one of the states you mention do you reside?

You want to know the laws that might apply for D.C. and for Maryland?

Well, it's all about a morals crime (murder), fueled, by jealousy, which occured, because, of information obtained, by circumventing, a subject's cell phone "fingerprint" recognition software; to obtain, photos and text mgs of a "telling" nature

Oh brother... :rolleyes:

If this doesn't involve you then why do you care?

If it does you'll have to do better at providing details than you have so far.

Murder? You should be speaking to the police and not an Internet forum. Or, if you are involved on the criminal side and not a victim, you should be speaking to an attorney.

Here is a link to computer crimes:
