Users choosing to update their Apple devices to iOS 8 will now have all of their data automatically encrypted, meaning it will only be viewable with the device owner’s corresponding Apple password.
Even if agencies were to obtain the data from Apple, they would be locked out via the new auto-encryption. Such encryption does not apply to users who haven’t downloaded the update, nor does it cover users’ iCloud backup and storage accounts.
I hate my IPhone but may have to revise my opinion of it.
hmm.September 27, 2014 at 2:33 pm #25499
I hope you are right on this one. If so this would be a problem for the NSA, FBI and CIA.September 27, 2014 at 3:11 pm #25503
Don’t know the cost of one of these but if you are worried about privacy it seems like a good option.September 27, 2014 at 3:33 pm #25507
here is another one
There is no privacy , I have a friend that puts his phone in the microwave while he is talking about certain things , dont know if that works or not ( no , you dont turn it on . )
Google is one of the worst privacy offenders , Apple went to hell after Steve Jobs died , now they are just like all the rest . I dont trust them , because all corporations are corrupt , and will roll over in some way . I think this is just a public relations campaign .September 27, 2014 at 5:35 pm #25512
I love my I Phone. With apps it even tells me which road has got a traffic jam. Very cool Knots app No idea why someone would like to know what my mother is having for dinner… But will upgrade anyway. ThanksSeptember 27, 2014 at 7:29 pm #25513
There is only one safe way dont say anything other than meet me. talk away from all electronic devices including things like tv, computers and any appliance can beep. beep is use of a pizo crystal which is base of micro phone it can go both ways, power lines are able to transmit signal to any “smart” appliance.
yeah it is paranoid, but if you give anyone enough data on you they can edit it to look like anything they want,not like they have not auto revised tv shows that where saved or cloud books on kindle. They save it all just in case… in case of what ask yourself?September 27, 2014 at 9:58 pm #25521
Agree with namelus, just don’t talk to much of anything that you do not want them to know. Use the phone for the family thing only.September 28, 2014 at 1:07 am #25533
That’s my understanding Whirilibird. Encryption. I’m liking my iPhone 6.September 28, 2014 at 9:40 am #25537
CHester encryption till when, it hits the cell tower? the uplink? the keyhole download? you think alphabet soup guys with super computer cant beat an encryption made on a handheld sent and decoded by handheld without delay? that is like saying the encryption/ cypher i made in grade 6 is uncrackable. if they record it all then have all the time in world to take it apart.September 28, 2014 at 2:13 pm #25541
I gave up a normal cell phone a few years ago. Just keep an old flip I have to add minutes to for emergencies. No one has the number – heck I don’t remember it. Part of my trying to live now more like I expect things to be in the future as much as possible….while still enjoying today. Don’t miss the thing at all. Cut out a lot of usefless, time consuming ‘chatter’ in my life.September 28, 2014 at 2:46 pm #25543
Sure the alphabet gents can beat the encryption.
But they won’t be able to do it with a warrant.
Your rank and file cop wont be able to dig fthrough your texts, downloads and such and perhaps even better, your friendly identity theif won’t be able to get your data off the phone if you lose it.
What stays on the phone, not the cloud is about as private as anything can be today, the way I read tjis.September 29, 2014 at 1:25 am #25583
iPhone 6 Encryption Codes Would Take NSA Years to BreakSeptember 29, 2014 at 2:17 am #25596
