The iPhone 6 is winning over a lot of people, even China! We reported yesterday that China finally lifted the ban on iPhone 6 after Apple promised it would not release any personal data of their customers to foreign governments. Today, it appears that more people are concerned with smartphone monitoring, as the U.S. law enforcement officials and former U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, have complained that smartphones are becoming increasingly hard to monitor.
Former U.S. Attorney General Believes People Placing Themselves above the Law When Protecting their Privacy
We’ve heard how law enforcement officials were complaining that Apple’s new operating system, iOS 8, was too hard to break into and now the former US Attorney General, Eric Holder, said yesterday at a press release that officers should not be blocked from obtaining the information they need when they’re investigating a crime.
Google is getting ready for a new Android update that is going to have such a good data encryption, that only the users will be able to unlock it. Sounds pretty great, don’t you think? Not if you’re the government!
Former US Attorney General, Holder, released an official statement where he expressed his thoughts on the latest smartphone security and how not even officers with warrants would be able to have access to the smartphones.
It is fully possible to permit law enforcement to do its job while still adequately protecting personal privacy. […] What concerns me about this is companies marketing something expressly to allow people to place themselves beyond the law.
So, basically, former US Attorney General Eric Holder believes that someone’s privacy should not be placed above the law and that smartphone companies should put the government first and its customers second. What are your thoughts on this matter? Drop us a line in the comment section below, we would love to hear what you have to say about this.
