The Privacy Company Does Not Encrypt Your Backups

Tuesday, 21 January 2020

Joseph Menn, for Reuters:

Apple Inc dropped plans to let iPhone users fully encrypt backups of their devices in the company’s iCloud service after the FBI complained that the move would harm investigations, six sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Ever since Trump unleashed on Twitter about Apple not helping the government to unlock iPhones and Apple’s response stated that they have actually contributed handing over iCloud backups, something started to seem odd.

Now with this Reuters’ report, can we affirm: That’s the backdoor?
