Privacy advocates gather in support of Apple’s stance against unlocking an iPhone

About two dozen privacy advocates stood shoulder to shoulder in front of the downtown San Francisco Apple store on Wednesday to support Apple’s stance in opposing an order from the U.S. government to unlock a shooter’s iPhone, reports The Guardian.

The rally was organized by Fight for the Future, a nonprofit organization that campaigns for Internet privacy rights, in response to Apple’s resistance to a federal magistrate ordering the company to help the FBI unlock the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters. Fight for the Future is planning to hold similar events at Apple stores across the country on Feb, 23.
