At Apple, their goal is to create a mass surveillance technology to control entire private databases of people , enriching Apple — while helping them stay profitable in the next decade. They say " We want to help protect children from predators who use communication tools to recruit and exploit them, and limit the spread of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM)".
We totally agree that Child Sexual Abuse is something that must be blocked, as well as many other sexual and criminal activities that are beyond " humanity" . But scanning all our most private data, is the biggest mistake that Apple is about to do. Blindness to its own brand image.
Apple is disregarding totally, the basic human right to privacy. Apple has spent literally years touting "privacy, privacy, privacy".
It has put up huge billboards. It has run amusing ads. It has an entire privacy microsite. Its CEO talks about privacy in every interview and public appearance. The company attacks other tech giants over privacy. It fought the entire ad industry over a new privacy feature.
In recent years, privacy has been both a major selling point and a huge part of Apple’s brand image.
Now Apple is becoming a Mass Surveillance tool, that will decide if you are a pedophile or not, if you intimate images are okay or you are a pervert.
APPLE is now deciding if you are a criminal or not.
This is time to take full control over your data. There is only one way to do it: ENCRYPTION.
Self Encrypting all your images, videos, audio files, docs and more, will prevent Apple and all the other privacy hackers like Facebook, Google, Microsoft , to scan your data and judge you or use your data for making profits.
Whatever you need to keep confidential, just encrypt it and then you can securely store it on your iPhone, MacBook or iCloud. Remember, only on its encrypted form.
