Apple CEO Rejects the Allegation of Working with NSA Back Doors

Apple CEO Rejects the Allegation of Working with NSA Back Doors
Tim Cook said that Apple was not assisting NSA to create back doors in its devices

Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, said to ABC News that the company had never been associated with NSA’s back door scandal.

Cook said, “Much of what has been said is not true. There is no back door. The government doesn’t have access to our servers. They would have to cart us out in a box for that, and that just will not happen. We feel that strongly about it.”

According to Apple Balla , Cook reassured that the company would remain strong to protect the user privacy from the US government, and mentioned that more transparency is required on the issue.

Cook said, “From my point of view, number one, we need to be significantly more transparent.” He added, “We need to say what data is being given, how many people it affects, how many accounts are affected. We need to be clear. And we have a gag order on us right now, so we can’t say those things.”

The tech giant was rumored to be involved with an NSA program, known as PRISM, where the security agency was building back doors in Apple’s product to get illegal access to the user information. Nonetheless, the Cupertino company had rejected the involvement, and revealed a statement through a message, entitled “Apple’s Commitment to Customer Privacy,” in which the tech giant defended itself.

Through the recent interview, Cook makes it clear that Apple will not do anything to endanger its users’ privacy.
