  • EFF Tips Hat to Apple Over Consumer Privacy Protection

    A new report published Thursday by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a California-based digital-privacy group, directs heavy praise toward Apple for its efforts to protect consumer privacy.

    All told, the report shows that a number of communications companies have similarly taken new steps over the last twelve months to be more transparent about government requests and to also lobby Washington to be more forthcoming about efforts that may compromise consumer privacy.

    Apple received a solid six out of six "stars" from the EFF. By comparison, in 2011, 2012, and 2013, Apple received only one star.

    "Apple's rating is particularly striking because it had lagged behind industry competitors in prior years, earning just one star in 2011, 2012, and 2013," the organization announced. "Apple shows remarkable improvement in its commitments to transparency and privacy."
