Do you know why they are doing this? When you agreed to work for them, did you sign anything that allowed them to demand this?

we don't sing anything, they're doing this because of the application by Android "SIPHONE".

Thank you. If the cell phone is your private property they have no legal right to be allowed to search it. You can refuse and share with them that you have a right to privacy and are unaware as to the basis or need to look through your phone and what they are hoping to actually seek to find. The fact that you are employed by them does not just allow them to search your phone and you can refuse.
