I absolutely agree with you, Paul. Apple is doing really great when it comes to privacy. I didn’t mention iMessage in this post simply because I don’t have a first-hand experience with the service. I’ve never used it, so can’t really comment on it. But I do understand and acknowledge that Apple is one of the best choices out there when it comes to privacy, much better than Android, as you mentioned.
But the hard truth is, nothing online is a 100% private. Apple, and others that I listed, make it much harder for people looking to steal data. Android, on the other hand, isn’t that difficult to crack, according to a lot of reports that I’ve read.
