Digital rights group: Save security, reject FBI’s iPhone unlocking request
Digital rights group Fight for the Future is hoping to give voice to ordinary people concerned with the FBI’s attempt to force Apple to help it unlock the iPhone used by a mass shooter.
Fight for the Future’s new Save Security campaign, launched Wednesday, will collect comments from people worried about the Internet security implications of the FBI’s court request. Organizers will display the comments and read them aloud outside a California courthouse before a hearing in the case next Tuesday.
“We’re actually trying to give a voice to people all over the world who are extremely concerned about this,” said Evan Greer, campaign director for the group. Fight for the Future is trying to “bring those voices into the conversation so that it’s not just a fight between a giant company and the government,” Greer added.
