Essay On Backdoor Technology

Decent Essays
A company called Apple, has always blanketed every one of their customers with security and safety, although there is one minimal problem.

Imagine the backdoor technology being in the wrong hands. The people’s justice and security would soon be taken away as their lives on a single device would forever be exposed and stolen from many people like hackers, criminals, and even the government. It’s an act of ruthless obstruction of justice and civil liberty, regarding the FBI’s dismissal on how threatening and harmful their consideration of backdoor technology is for all the people in the world. Hence Apple’s strong-spirited patriotic support for the freedom and rights of people, as Apple strongly believes that the supposed “democratic” government should not force Apple or other companies to invade everyone’s privacy through the use of their

A system is already in place called the Mass Warrantless Surveillance Network. MWSN looks for, “atypical internet searches, site visits, email exchanges, and credit card purchases,” of everyone it can. However, the high rate of false positives generated by MWSN means that the system cannot generate actionable intelligence (Cohen). The side effect of MWSN and other related programs is that US tech companies could lose around, “$180 billion by 2016 due to international concerns about intelligence agencies’ spying” (Feldman).…
