Apple’s Privacy Policy

Apple’s new privacy policy allows the user to encrypt emails, contacts, and photos that uses a code that the user has created. Not even Apple will have access to this code. This gives sole power over iPhone’s personal data to the user, and this has authorities concerned. FBI director, James B. Comey has stated “What concerns me about this is companies marketing something expressly to allow people to place themselves beyond the law”, reports WSJ’s Brent Kendall.

On one hand, people have the right to their privacy and protecting their personal data. Ever since Snowden’s revelations, personal privacy has been a great concern, and Apple is on the track to giving people back their personal security. On the other hand, Apple’s new privacy policy puts users above the law, which can prevent authorities from protecting the public from potential threats. What is your take on Apple’s new privacy policy?
