Cyber agents are required to meet a list of additional requirements along with the basic requirements of being a special agent. You must be between ages 23-36 and have at least a bachelor's degree from a U.S. secondary institution. Relocation is likely to meet the needs of the Bureau and being in top physical shape would be a must.

Becoming and FBI agent is challenging, exciting, and rewarding. That is why it is unlike any other career path. You have a chance to serve our country and enjoy getting paid to do it.

"There is no such thing as a typical day for an FBI Special Agent. Every day is different. One day you could be testifying in federal court, the next you could be executing a search warrant and gathering evidence, the next you could be meeting with a source to gather intelligence on illegal activities, the next you could be making an arrest, and the next you could be back in the office meeting with your squad and catching up on paperwork."

The FBI claims to use the String Ray on frequent operations. The device can intercept signals from major providers such as Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. This practice is considered poaching to some who don't agree.

“If people ask, ‘Why should I care about this?' I would answer that there are First Amendment concerns about the freedom of their speech when the government is tracking it,” said Ginger McCall. The first amendment protects a citizen from unjust "snooping" from the government. This is a large controversy because in order to monitor criminals, they intercept electronic information of innocent citizens as well. Some feel this is an invasion of privacy but if they don't have anything to hide, what is there to be worried about?

The FBI justifies it's right to conduct such operations by obtaining search warrants through a judge. This is only provided with justifiable probable cause that a crime is being committed or if the line is relevant to an ongoing investigation.
