In today’s world your cell phone is almost as important as your wallet.
Online banking, conversations, pictures, passwords, notes and so much more all stored in one place.
Apple is currently going against the FBI’s requests.
The FBI has demanded that Apple help them break into one of the iPhones that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters.
iPhone’s have a security option that permanently delete all the data on the phone if you get the password wrong a certain amount of times.
The FBI wants Apple to disable this security feature so they can guess the combination as many times as they want without the risk of losing the info they are looking for.
Apple is fighting back because they say if they are forced to make a ‘back door’ into the iPhones this software would be able to work on any of their phones.
Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple released this statement about the whole situation.
Even Edward Snowden shared his feelings on the subject…
What do you think?
Should Apple create a ‘back door’ into their phones or are they right for trying to protect customer security?
