Shyanne Brown 2nd hr comp ABC News Apple Encryption Federal authorities have captured a San Bernardino Shooter. The authorities obtained the shooters phone and asked Apple to hack it so that they could get into the phone and find out information on later attacks. Apple said no and decided to fight in court against the authorities. Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that creating a backdoor for law enforcement to bypass security measures could compromise users' privacy. Brad Smith (Microsoft's president) states, " Technology companies should not be required to build in back doors to the technologies that keep their users' information secure". Authorities never asked apple to change their system. They just asked for them to hack into one phone for information. Is this invading into the terrorists rights. Do you think apple should help?
