    This is a bad idea, in my opinion, no matter how well-intentioned it may be.

    The fact that they’re going to scan on device, using the processing power of the phone I purchased does not fly with me. Intentions are well understood. But I’m switching iCloud Photos off and going down to the free tier of iCloud storage since Photos is a majority of my storage.

    I just can’t imagine what other hashes could be added to this by any government in the world. Most especially the U.S. Government.

    I fully support fighting casm but I’m not cool with my phone having a back door. Might as well get a Google pixel and switch it up this year.

    I’m still confused ! this seems to say that Apple is trying to keep it’s hands clean, but does want to virtue signal, and has obscured this by fudging the explanation ?
