Apple and a number of electronics companies have received allegations of backdoor (security holes) in the products they make. That accusation appeared in NSA documents leaked by the whistleblower, Edward Snowden.
Responding to the allegations, Apple has strongly been compromised by government agencies NSA (National Security Agency) to create a backdoor in their products.
In addition, forensic scientist and author Jonathan Zdziarski also alleges the same thing in Apple devices such as the iPhone and iPad. According to him, the NSA has used some iOS features and services to collect data from a person who becomes the target.
"I suspect (based on the outstanding documents) that Apple could be some services have been used by the NSA to collect data from their potential targets," Zdziarski said.
Although Zdziarski did not accuse Apple cooperation with the NSA, but he was convinced that there was indeed a backdoor on Apple devices.
In a statement, quoted from CNet (07/22/2014), Apple is said to have designed the diagnostic functions of IOS that does not violate the privacy and security of its users.
However, Apple acknowledged taking some of the products information used by users, but aims to provide information for their IT departments, developers, and technical issues that arise.
Before using Apple devices, the user must agree that they will share the information above. The data which collected by Apple also claimed will not be shared with other parties without their knowledge.
