Is the use of mobile phone jammers legal?

  • In some public places in Mexico, mobile phones are usually unavailable or the signal is unavailable. This is because the cell phone signal is blocked. Is it legal to use signal blocking devices in these places?

    Although Mexico does not have laws against these devices, private use of cell phone portable jammer is illegal in the United States and most Western countries. In Japan, as long as the government permits, jammers can be installed in public places such as theaters and concert halls. Last week, the French Minister of Industry approved the decision on cinemas, concert halls and theaters, but only if precautions must be taken so that emergency calls can still be made.

    Canada has considered allowing installations under similar circumstances, and Industry Canada, which oversees Telecom Canada, has objected, saying that these devices may violate personal freedom and affect public safety due to paralysis of communication with law enforcement and security agencies.
