No matter how well-intentioned, Apple is rolling out mass surveillance to the entire world with this. Make no mistake: if they can scan for kiddie porn today, they can scan for anything tomorrow. They turned a trillion dollars of devices into iNarcs—*without asking.*

Prove me wrong alexstamos, apple and Tim Cook: join me in calling for hearings into the Intelligence Community, its connection to Jeffrey Epstein and state protected pedophilia in our highest “elite” Echelons. No? Thought so. This is sickening. Creepy Cowardice? That’s iPhone.

I read the information Apple put out yesterday and I'm concerned. I think this is the wrong approach and a setback for people's privacy all over the world. People have asked if we'll adopt this system for WhatsApp. The answer is no.

Here. I said it in Telegraph. Any kind of data may be potentially targeted. Apple's system is a world-precedent in the area of remote inspection of private data/files. This is a huge power/capability.
