Apple fans are calling for halting “efforts that compel Apple and other device makers to create a “backdoor” for the Government to access citizens data”. This petition has been launched at the White House. It addresses President Barack Obama. The petition says:
The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of it’s customers.
The FBI, is demanding that Apple build a “backdoor” to bypass digital locks protecting consumer information on Apple’s popular iPhones.
We the undersigned, oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.
Apple was ordered by a federal judge to comply with the FBI’s request for unlocking the San Bernadino gunmen’s iPhone 5C.
UPDATE: The petition has passed 10,000 signatures.
