    Default Apple and Privacy

    I found this article interesting..

    Which Messaging Apps Are Encrypted? | Re/code

    Apple’s iMessages are end-to-end encrypted, which means they can only be read on users’ phones and the company can’t read them. There’s a caveat here, though. If you back up your messages in iCloud, then Apple can read them and could be forced to hand them over to authorities if provided with an appropriate warrant.

    Does this mean that all data we store in iCloud is treated the same way? Files, data, etc??

    To the best of my knowledge, and I am no way a lawyer or expert but yes I believe they are. Since they are stored on servers owned by the Company and therefore essentially not in YOUR possession they are subject to search by warrant given to Apple.

    When things are saved to YOUR device they would in turn have to serve you the warrant
