    Default Apple Issues a Public Comment on its "Commitment to Customer Privacy"


    Apple recently published a rare public comment discussing “Apple’s Commitment to Customer Privacy” in the wake of reports on the United States “Prism” surveillance program. Shortly before Apple’s weeklong Worldwide Developer Conference opened, the Washington Post published a report outlining a formerly secret government project, codenamed Prism, which supposedly monitored the central servers of nine major U.S. Internet companies, including Apple.

    The report, which was based on leaked PowerPoint slides, described the government as being able to “extract audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time."

    The Cupertino California company recently denied the claims in a statement to The Wall Street Journal by saying the following:

    We have never heard of Prism. We do not provide any government agency with direct access to our servers.
    Today’s follow-up comment which was published earlier in the morning and linked from the company’s main website further clarifies Apple’s stance on the topic. Those of you who are interested in reading it can do so by hitting the source link below.

    Statement doesn't say anything...
