Apple CEO Tim Cook staunchly defended personal privacy and the use of encryption on iPhones amidst renewed concerns about terrorists hiding covert electronic messages when they plan deadly attacks. He said this in an interview with CBS This Morning according to Computerworld. Read the article here.
Apple’s reason for protecting a user’s data with encryption technology is to offer privacy for all kinds of personal data, such as health information, intimate conversations with family, and more. Opening up that encrypted data in some way would make the information widely available, Cook said.
Well said, Mr. Cook.
