Commenting on the protection of user privacy in an interview, Apple CEO Tim Cook said online privacy has become an important issue in the “crisis” dimension.
In an interview with ABC News, Apple CEO Tim Cook described online privacy as a “crisis” and reaffirmed the company’s stance on privacy. “Privacy has become a crisis in itself.” said.
In his interview, Cook noted that Apple, unlike Google and Facebook, did not focus on advertising and did not use user data to improve ad targeting.
“You’re not our product. Our products are iPhones and iPads. We’re aware of the value of your data, so we want to help you keep them private and secure.” said.
Cook expresses every opportunity that he is a defender of consumer privacy. In this respect, it is known that companies support the government efforts to collect data and to make it difficult to share consumer data between companies.
Apple doesn’t collect consumers’ data, but it makes financial gains from its partnership with Google, the default search engine in iPhone’s Safari browser. The terms of the agreement were not announced by the two companies, but according to analysts, Google is expected to pay $ 12 billion to Apple in 2019. Tim Cook said that they are working with Google because they think it is the best browser.
Cook recently described the situation as a crisis, but he said it was correctable. He said the problem could be overcome together and that they would be allies to tackle this problem.
