Former US intelligence officer Edward Snowden warned smartphone owners about the dangers of viewing their personal data by gadget companies, in particular Apple . According to Edward Snowden, now in the USA they are just launching a special technology. With this technology they will be able to search for information in the phone. But once Apple proves that it can see the contents of the files on the phone, it becomes a serious breach of privacy. At some point, the American corporation will “cross the barrier” and start looking for “politically inconvenient” and financial moments.
“And even if you trust Apple, once Apple sets a precedent, once they do it to anyone, they lose the right to say they’ll never use it. Think Apple will be able to refuse the US government, the Russian government, the Chinese government , France or the UK ? Of course, the answer is no, “Snowden said, speaking at the New Knowledge marathon.
