He testified that Apple provided substantial assistance in the investigation. A week ago there was a press conference in Florida regarding the shooting at a US Navy base, which is considered a terrorist operation. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani had iPhone 5 and iPhone 7 smartphones.
Which the FBI asked Apple to unlock. The Cupertino-based company said it was critical to the privacy of its customers.
Attorney General William Barr (William Barr) said Apple did not provide any assistance in unlocking the iPhone. Apple later denied the bar’s claim that the company shared a lot of valuable information with the FBI. It is also interesting that FBI agents have differing opinions on the bar’s statements.
Some agents said they were surprised by what they said. They confirm that Apple provided substantial assistance in the investigation. Other agents are concerned that regular calls to Apple’s backdoor to access iPhone users’ personal data could tarnish the relationship between the FBI and Apple.
However, Apple has again said that the company will not build a backdoor, especially because they can be used by people who threaten US national security and the security of users’ personal data.
FBI agents stand up to Apple:
According to foreign media reports, four people, including Saudi gunmen, were killed and several injured in a Florida air shooting last month. During the investigation, Apple was asked to help open two iPhone devices used by Saudi gunners.
Attorney General William Barr said Monday that Apple did not provide any “implementation assistance” to unlock the iPhone. Apple subsequently denied the bar’s claims, saying the company had shared “several G’s” with the FBI. Further, there are recent reports that some FBI agents have different views on the bar’s claims.
Some agents said they were surprised by the bar’s words because they thought Apple had provided substantial assistance in the investigation. Other agents also fear that repeated requests from Apple to unlock the device. For the purpose to access private data stored on the phone could damage the relationship between the FBI and Apple.
Apple also cited privacy concerns as rejecting requests to open door doors on the iPhone. Apple wrote in a statement: “Apple will not use any backdoor.
It will also use backdoor that threatens our national security and our users’ data security.” Security experts also said that opening the door to law enforcement agencies would make consumers feel like a private nightmare. Which would endanger the privacy of so many innocent people.
