Alex Stamos on Apple’s New Child Safety Measures

Alex Stamos — former head of security at Facebook, currently at Stanford Internet Observatory, in a thread on Twitter:

In my opinion, there are no easy answers here. I find myself constantly torn between wanting everybody to have access to cryptographic privacy and the reality of the scale and depth of harm that has been enabled by modern comms technologies.

Nuanced opinions are OK on this.

Good thread with much to consider.
