Woodhull, EFF Issue Call to Action Against Apple iPhone Surveillance

SAN FRANCISCO — The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is organizing an action to convince Apple to reconsider incorporating a new surveillance technology into all its products, supposedly in the name of “child safety,” which will scan users’ photos and messages.

The Woodhull Freedom Foundation — a national organization dedicated to affirming and protecting sexual freedom as a fundamental human right — today issued a call to action (CTA) via Twitter, encouraging supporters to join EFF’s campaign.

“Proud to be a supporter of this effort to stop Apple from continuing down this path to a lack of privacy that will haunt us for years to come,” the Woodhull account tweeted. “Won't you add your signature?”

EFF’s CTA explains that Apple “has abandoned its once-famous commitment to security and privacy. The next version of iOS will contain software that scans users’ photos and messages. Under pressure from U.S. law enforcement, Apple has put a backdoor into their encryption system.”

The digital rights group is urging supporters to sign its petition, and “tell Apple to stop its plan to scan our phones.” 

“Users need to speak up ... this violation of our privacy is wrong,” the EFF announcement concludes.

To sign the petition, visit the EFF CTA site.
