Apple announces plans to scan photos in people's phones for images of child abuse/pornography



Apple has announced new updates to its software for iPhones and other devices saying it will start to scan U.S. iPhones for images of child sexual abuse.


The decision by Apple to start scanning phones drew applause from child protection groups but security researchers say the system could be misused by governments like China, Belarus and Nigeria looking to surveil activities of its citizens.



According to Apple, the messaging app will use on-device machine learning to warn about sensitive content without making private communications readable by the company.
