Reuters claims that Apple canceled the encryption of iCloud backups so as not to harm the FBI


It seems that The Cupertino company would have canceled the encryption of backups or backups in iCloud so as not to harm the investigations being carried out by the FBI. This was a couple of years ago and the Reuters agency confirms it. With the cancellation of this encrypted encryption in the iCloud copies, Apple shows that it is willing to help the country’s authorities even after receiving direct accusations of not wanting to collaborate, even from the country’s presidency.

What if Apple hadn’t canceled it?

Well basically that with this full encrypted encryption of the iCloud copies not even the company itself would have access to them and therefore the stored information such as photos, messages, browsing history, passwords, user information or information of any kind could never have been offered to the authorities. So after a meeting with the FBI itself, the Cupertino company decided not to implement this encryption and in this way integrates not being accused of protecting data from criminals… In the end, everything and with that the firm continues to be the target of attacks for it.
