Kudos to Apple for standing behind the security of their customers.
A Message to Our Customers
The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.
This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.
For those of you who are sporting an iPhone or any other iOS device, you may want to consider the fact when you lock your iOS device, it is just as secure as the criminal’s in this case. Here are a few things to consider:
- If you don’t want to lock your loved one’s from accessing your device in the horrible event of your passing, make sure that they know or have access to your password.
- If you store critical files or precious memories on your device, be sure to back it up regularly. Even a broken screen will prevent any chance of recovering your files until the screen is repaired.
- Keep your device away from curious fingers who might just enter your password incorrectly one time too many.
Although we are discussing iPhones and iOS devices, the same is true of BlackBerry and Android devices.
