Today it has taken another step by launching a website dedicated to this privacy , which can be consulted here in Spanish.
As you will see, the new section is chaired by the letter from Tim Cook which has already been published in English translated into Spanish and which explains the debate on privacy on the net from its roots. From it, I would especially mention this sentence: ” Internet service users began to realize that when an online service is free, you are not the client, but the product “. Did someone say Google? There’s nothing like winking at the competition.
Following the letter, the website compiles three sections that tell us how all Apple services have built-in privacy, the tools we can use to manage and enhance our security, and the requests governments have sent Apple for disclosure of personal information.
That’s where you get three interesting figures:
- 93% of the information requests are about devices, mostly terminals that have been stolen.
- The remaining 7% of the requests are for information on user accounts.
- Of all the government requests that Apple has received to submit customer data, less than 0.00385% have been successful.
A whole declaration of intent in which Apple wants to defend itself against the latest controversies. It remains to be seen what will be revealed in the very small percentage of requests that are complied with, although I assume that these will be data that will serve to uncover legal evidence.
