Snowden warned iPhone owners about the danger
Apple crossed the barrier by viewing user data directly on phones, said former US intelligence officer Edward Snowden
According to him, there is a вЂњkey differenceвЂќ between how the IT giant checks data now compared to how it used to happen before. Before that, they performed checks on their servers and in their data centers.
вЂњWe have never seen this. They want to search for this illegal content on your devices even before this information is on their servers. They pack it all into beautiful stories about how it's all about your own security, personal data protection. But there is a clear boundary between what is in their property and what is in your property. Now they are telling your device what to look for, " Snowden explained.
Such behavior, he believes, crosses a certain barrier that allows you to view your phones and search for anything.
вЂњThey can look for some political inconvenient moments, financial information, basically anything. And even if you trust Apple, ... as soon as Apple creates a precedent, as soon as they do this with someone, apply this technology, they will lose the right to say that they will never use it, " he stressed.
