Apple’s new iPhone range that is coming with an encryption technology is all set to create hurdles for the government agencies in accessing of its information.
According to a New York Times report, the user data related to emails, address book, images, passwords, bank account numbers and many more highly confidential data will be encrypted in the iPhone up to an extent that the National Security Agency (NSA) and other law enforcement agencies will struggle badly while accessing those information.
Technology experts say even if Apple opens up user information before the authorities, the new algorithm used in the iPhone 6 will only allow access to essentially nonsense user info until the security agencies spend quality time trying to decrypt it.
The Cupertino-based company has also claimed that it will not retain the unique algorithm that can help in breaking the code for each specific phone.
While criticizing the Apple’s encryption algorithm during a press conference, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey had said that such kind of technology will allow people “hold themselves beyond the law.”
According to Comey, such elevated technology for privacy protections could badly hinder investigations related to serious crimes including kidnappings, robbery, murder and many more.
The new Apple smartphone will allow the users to download security applications to protect their information from being seen to the third party. In such a scenario, the security agencies including the FBI, NSA and others are concerned that such a high level of protections will lead to many bads than doing goods for the users. Besides, such technology will make the job of security agencies very difficult by hindering their probe badly.
