Poll Context: At the famous South By Southwest festival in Austin Texas this past weekend Obama called for all tech companies to build mobile devices so government can have access to personal data if needed for criminal investigations and tax investigations.
“The question we now have to ask is: If technologically it is possible to make an impenetrable device or system where the encryption is so strong that there is no key, there’s no door at all, then how do we apprehend the child pornographer, how do we solve or disrupt a terrorist plot?”
“What mechanisms do we have available to even do simple things like tax enforcement because if in fact you can’t crack that at all, government can’t get in, then everybody is walking around with a Swiss bank account in their pocket.”
This is in light of Apple standing up to the government because the government wants Apple to make its products with weakened security so the government can get access. Take the poll below!
