Is ICE checking phones of non-citizens at the border? Privacy tips?

I'm going to be traveling outside the US and re-entering on a valid visa. How likely is it my phone might be inspected on re-entry? I have nothing to hide (and am not from a travel ban or Muslim-majority country), but don't like the idea of immigration agents reading my email etc. Has anyone here had their phone inspected entering the US, or heard of someone who has? What would be best practices for keeping as much as privacy as possible in case one's phone is inspected -- I'll definitely be logging out of email, deleting cookies and clearing browser history before going through the border, but how effective is that and what else would you do?
