Customer Letter - Apple
This week, Apple started a new discussion about privacy, encryption and built-in backdoors on their devices. They received an order to build a custom iOS built, signed by Apple, that lacks several security measurements so that the FBI could hack into phone data relatively easily. In an open letter Apple shared why they declined to do so. Luckily, a lot of companies seem to agree with Apple, and I hope we can find a good way to protect our privacy, and with that, our personal security. Because, as we all know, even if such a backdoor is kept secure, no one could assure that this piece of software won’t get stolen and abused by someone who shouldn’t have access to it.
