When Apple announced a new program that would scan photos in all products, from phones to tablets and more, whether the owners wanted that or not, privacy experts rose up to protest.
The company then said it would delay the program “while consulting with various groups about its impact,” according to a report from the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
But the EFF has now issued a warning that consumers should not allow themselves to become complacent about the plans for the company’s breach of privacy.
“The delay may well be a diversionary tactic,” the organization explained in a report this week. “Every September, Apple holds one of its big product announcement events, where Apple executives detail the new devices and features coming out. Apple likely didn’t want concerns about the phone-scanning features to steal the spotlight.”
The EFF said the program “poses an enormous danger to privacy and security,” and the “disastrous” idea should not be allowed to fade into the background. (Read more from “Privacy Experts Warn Consumers Apple’s Photo-Scans May Return” HERE)
