End to End Encryption Isn’t So Secure After All
When company chooses to log information which isn’t necessary and breach privacy acts, end to end encryption is no use. Apple promises that your iMessage’s are secure and safe. Unfortunately this is not the case. Documents obtained by The Intercept, show’s that Apple logs your IP addresses and contacts stored on your phone even though no communication were carried out. Apple assures that data logging does not necessary mean communications were occurred, it is “only that a query is initiated”.
Do Apple really needs to log these information’s? How often these queries are logged and how long? The company has previously said that your iMessages and FaceTime calls are your business, not ours. … Unlike other companies’ messaging services, Apple doesn’t scan your communications, and we wouldn’t be able to comply with a wiretap order even if we wanted to.” also “For example, conversations which take place over iMessage and FaceTime are protected by end-to-end encryption so no one but the sender and receiver can see or read them. Apple cannot decrypt that data. Similarly, we do not store data related to customers’ location, Map searches or Siri requests in any identifiable form.”
