Apple's Tim Cook tells graduates to be fearless

Apple's Tim Cook tells graduates to be fearless

This comment echoed with this year's Facebook data controversy, which Cook heavily criticized after it was revealed that political data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica was able to breach into the data and information of almost 90 million Facebook users.

"We reject the excuse that getting the most out of technology means trading away your right to privacy", Cook told the assembled students and teachers.

"No generation has ever had more power than yours", Cook said at Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium. "So we choose a different path: Collecting as little of your data as possible. I wouldn't be in this situation", Cook said during a town hall discussion back in March.

"When you say we, as an organization, take privacy very seriously, it is an effective recruiting tool and one to gain a competitive advantage" for a younger audience, says Rashmi Knowles, field Chief Technology Officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa at RSA Security. We've elected not to do that'.

Cook has previously called on the federal government to step in and regulate the social media site.

"If you can say, 'we do not take your data, ' there are going to be people who say they feel more comfortable going to Apple than Facebook", Cramer said.

The firm announced in February it was planning to move iCloud accounts registered in China to state-run servers.

Apple has less need for data after closing its advertising division, iAd, in 2016; and iOS apps are subject to much stricter terms than Android equivalents about what information they can collect.
