A big issue right now is the battle between the FBI and Apple over an iPhone salvaged from the investigation of the San Bernardino massacre in December. Apple was asked by the FBI to help hack into the phone and Apple had declined. Following that, the FBI sent Apple a court order to create a forensics tool and Apple is trying to fight this.
Apple’s recognized for their guaranteed user privacy, so the Feds have blamed Apple for putting their brand image above a terrorism investigation. The reason why Apple does not want to create this tool is because it will be extremely dangerous since it would end up becoming public. When it becomes public, that means it’ll be usable by any law enforcement, foreign governments and criminal organizations.
There are two feasible sides to this issue but to protect all devices in the future, I’m siding with Apple.
