Protest Tuesday: No Backdoor in Our Phones

This Tuesday we are joining with Fight for the Future to protest a judge’s order to Apple to build a software “backdoor” to help them hack into an iPhoneWe will meet at 5:30pm at the Apple Store, 815 Boylston Street in Boston.

While the order is confined to just one phone, following this order gives the FBI a precedent for getting a backdoor in any phone, even newer ones.  Once that precedent is set, it won’t be too long before the FBI will be using FISA warrants or potentially no warrants to get into our phones.  Whatever your feelings about Apple, this issue affects all encryption software.

If you cannot attend the Boston rally, you can find others at You can even organize one at an Apple store near you, just email so Fight for the Future knows about it.
