Is Apple going too far with the Child Abuse Content policy?

Apple on Thursday said it’s introducing new child safety features in iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and macOS as part of its efforts to limit the spread of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) in the U.S.

U.S. whistle-blower Edward Snowden tweeted that, despite the project’s good intentions, what Apple is rolling out is “mass surveillance,” while Johns Hopkins University cryptography professor and security expert Matthew Green said, “the problem is that encryption is a powerful tool that provides privacy, and you can’t really have strong privacy while also surveilling every image anyone sends.”
