Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has pledged his support for Apple’s stand against providing backdoors for its products.
Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed in a post on the company’s website that the United States government asked them to build a backdoor for the iPhone.
Cook said that while the FBI might argue the backdoored version of iOS is for once-off use only, Cook said there is no way to guarantee such control.
Dorsey supports Cook, saying in a Tweet that “We stand with Tim Cook and Apple, and thank him for his leadership”.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has also joined the debate, supporting Cook’s view.
He said Cook’s post was important, because “forcing companies to enable hacking could compromise users’ privacy”.
