the fourth amendment IS still used today, just not as much. nowadays no one can come to your house and search it, of a police man does that, you have the right to keep them out of the house and not allow them to enter.

Back in the mid 1700s, the Writs of Assistance allowed royal officers to search the homes of citizens, mostly as a way of discovering violations of strict English …laws. This practice led to a unique awareness among our Founding Fathers of the threat to individual liberty and privacy that is created by unchecked government search powers. They decided to create an amendment that both gave the goevernment power to search criminals and also prevented the government from repeating English history (which was the point of coming to a new land and forming a new government, wasn't it).
The first amendment is used today by people speaking their own minds to whomever they choose. People are aloud to choose whatever religion they want to be. They also start the…ir own assembly all because the first amendment says you are aloud to.
It is used for basic training for active or unactive troops or to teach the new bread of children how to use a weapon and to defend family or your local busnisus.
Part of the Bill of Rights, the 4th Amendment protects all citizens of the US against unreasonable search and seizure. The police or other agency must have probable cause, a…nd receive a judicial warrant, to enter a home or to seize any property within it. This has since been extended to cover vehicles as well, although the protection is limited and has several exceptions.
In court mostly. Or when you get arrested. They say you have "the right to remain silent." That's your 5th amendement.
the fourth amendment affects our society today because we still have rights as humans, we can be put to jail for crime, and most of all we shall not be violated.

protects Americans form unreasonable searches and seizures
The amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. The 4th Amendment of the US Constitution is: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, ho…uses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
it protects us against unreasonable searches or seizures without a warrent
Amendment VII of the United States Constitution (part of the Bill of Rights) specifies the right to a jury trial in certain civil cases under federal; jurisdiction. However,… although the U.S. Supreme Court has incorporated most of the amendments of the Bill of Rights to obtain for states, this is not the case with the 7th amendment.
U.S. Const., Amend. IV: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violate…d, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." In criminal law, Amendment IV forms the Constitutional basis for the common-law Exclusionary Rule, which provides for the exclusion of evidence unlawfully obtained in criminal prosecutions, and also as to civil actions. Amendment IV specifies the requirement of the existence of probable cause as a prerequisite for government action to arrest or detain or prosecute, and specifies requirements for the contents and declarations of authority in arrest warrants and search warrants. Both federal and State statutes and rules effectuate this, as well as common-law decisions. Amendment IV is one of the most basic and broad-ranging of the Amendments comprising the Bill of Rights. It is one of the most intuitive to laypersons as to their relationship with the agents of their government, and as to each other. "Mirroring" provisions as to State law are set forth in State Constitutions, and are often cited concurrently with their federal counterpart.
In Civil Rights
It relates to us more than you'd think, say you were accused of a crime you did not commit and no one believed you despite modern technology, the government could not just ran…sack your house and property without enough proof to issue a search warrant. It's necessary to ensure personal privacy.
