Apple and other companies are going to start notifying users when investigations require their cooperation

Apple, and many other major tech companies, have in the past been forced to quietly comply with the demands from government agencies in regards to their customer’s data. As reported by Apple Balla, that will be drastically changing in a way that the Federal Government says will interfere with investigations and make it harder to fight crime.

The changes that are coming to their policy mean that Apple will tell you if the government is requesting your information from them. This will change, however, if there is a gag order specifically attached, although in the past these requests have included suggestions on secrecy. When Apple has failed to listen to that urging, however, the government has dropped their requests altogether, which could save them the hassle of legal battles in some cases in the future.

 

This all continues to stem from the leaks of NSA plans by Edward Snowden, which revealed the extent of the data collection practices that the Federal Government has been running for the past few years. There will still be exceptions in this, when Apple will be forced to comply, but this could be a major game changer for the tech world and the concerns about privacy that many people now have.
