Edward Snowden: 'Apple is Rolling Out Mass Surveillance to the Entire World'

Posted by · 9281 views · Translate

Edward Snowden, the security consultant who leaked the existence of numerous NSA global surveillance programs in 2013, says that 'Apple is rolling out mass surveillance to the entire world'.

Yesterday, Apple announced that it will soon begin scanning user photos for child pornography. Additionally, it will also scan messages to and from minors for sexual content.

The EFF slammed the news as a tectonic shift in the company’s stance toward strong encryption noting that a narrowly focused backdoor is still a backdoor and can be easily widened to include whatever content the company or governments would like.

In a tweet, Snowden also condemned Apple's announcement..

-----
No matter how well-intentioned, @Apple is rolling out mass surveillance to the entire world with this. Make no mistake: if they can scan for kiddie porn today, they can scan for anything tomorrow.

They turned a trillion dollars of devices into iNarcs—*without asking.*

The problem is what one can do when every company is the same with just small differences? Where can you go to be left alone?

Cancel Culture on a global scale 👍🏻 We don’t like what you have on your phone, so we’ll disable it. You have been warned about this a very long time ago...

They refused to open (to fbi) an iPhone 5s (few years back I believe) of a shooter though
