Apple posts guidelines for law enforcement data requests

Apple has publicly posted its guidelines for U.S. law enforcement or other government entities requesting information on a new website. As reported recently, Apple states that it “will notify its customers when their personal information is being sought in response to legal process except where providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself….” The company points out it can intercept email with a valid Wiretap Order, but not iMessage or FaceTime communications, due to end-to-end encryption. It’s also reiterated that Apple doesn’t have access to user passcodes, “but may be able to extract some data from a locked device with a valid search warrant.”
