WikiLeaks: Apple 'merges' information about users to governments
WikiLeaks’ ongoing dump of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta have already offered a few insights relating to Apple. The most recent dump includes an email from Apple Vice-President Lisa Jackson dated December 20, 2015.
"Thousands of times every month, we give governments information about Apple customers and devices, in response to warrants and other forms of legal process. We have a team that responds to those requests 24 hours a day," the message says.
She added that strong encryption does not eliminate Apple’s ability to give law enforcement meta-data or any of a number of other very useful categories of data.
