  • Apple backs down on CSAM features, postpones launch

    Anyone using iCloud has to agree to the terms of service. Apple reserves the right to scan files being backed up in the cloud. And only files that are coming from apps that the user has chosen to be backed up in iCloud would be scanned in either scenario. 
    That is incorrect.  When iCloud Photos is turned on, Apple will scan EVERY SINGLE photo on YOUR device.   You don't get to choose because Apple set it up that way.   The moment you take a photo with the phone, Apple scans it.  If it is a 'partial' match to a hash, it is flagged without your knowledge.

    How many of the people screaming about CSAM have Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and google apps on their devices and an Amazon or google smart speaker in their home?
    Those other companies are not scanning your device, nor are they scanning every single photo on your device.  People are fine with companies scanning their own servers because they choose what to upload to the cloud.  Apple wants to scan every single photo on your device if iCloud Photos is turned on, and Apple turns it on by default.  You can't claim you are a privacy advocate and turn around and scan everyone's personal device at the same time.  Apple can't claim privacy and then tell the customer they have keys to your house to look at everything you own.
