Apple product users have long thought that they were safe, or at least safer than Windows users, from unwanted hacks, attacks, and government intrusions because of Apple’s efforts at security.
They may not feel that way now.
Because the CIA has put special effort into hacking into Apple products, especially iPads and iPhones.
Now, why would our government do this? Do they really think that Apple users should be special targets for government intrusion and surveillance? Do they think that Apple users are more dangerous than non-Apple users?
That is doubtful. What the government really wants is to watch every move that you make, as the NSA already showed to us, because, if they can track every text that we send, every phone call that we make, if they can access our mobile devices with the GPS component, then they can profile us and track us.
But Windows users shouldn’t feel safe, either. According to The Intercept:
Other presentations at the CIA conference have focused on the products of Apple’s competitors, including Microsoft’s BitLocker encryption system, which is used widely on laptop and desktop computers running premium editions of Windows.
Evidence of the police state? Stalin only dreamed of this level of access and control of the populace.
