  1. As aforementioned the third party doctrine states that the Fourth Amendment does not hold for the information that an individual has shared with third parties and therefore they do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy if the documents are subpoenaed
  2. Application of the Fourth Amendment is only dependent on whether the person that invoking the protection by it can show a legitimate expectancy of protection through the actions that they have taken
  3. The use of metadata that is exchanged over the telephones has not been as extensively common as it is in today and therefore the people that share the data with their phones need to be aware that the data shared over the telephone is similar to the information exchanged over the phone
  4. The third party doctrine arose from an argument against a court case where a criminal had seen his bank records used against him by the government agencies in a court of law

It is a United States legal theory that holds that information that is freely given to third parties should not be expected to be private or people should not use the Fourth Amendment Act as a defense against the convictions. The rule gives the government and government agencies a Right to ?intrude? per se and look through ones private records if they have reasonable doubt about one's behavior or are within their own rights to conduct the search. With the development in technology the criminals have found new ways to mask their illegal businesses and make it difficult for the police to track through the use of the old tracking methods.
