Apple warns Senate’s big-tech bill would weaken user-privacy, WSJ reports
On January 19, 2021, Apple (AAPL) has warned that Senate Judiciary Committee is set to debate a bill that will limit the power of large tech companies, which would weaken a privacy-protection tool that the company rolled out last year, Tim Higgins of The Wall Street Journal reports. Apple has said congressional efforts to prevent it from prohibiting “sideloading,” the practice of downloading software onto phones outside of the App Store’s security, would expose users to security threats because those apps would not be vetted. Apple reiterated those claim Tuesday, but also argued the legislation would benefit “those who have been irresponsible with users’ data” and those who opposed the company’s App Tracking Transparency program, according to a letter to committee leaders the Journal reviewed. The legislation is set to limit the power of Apple as well as Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOG;GOOGL), and Facebook’s (FB) Meta Platforms (MVRS), according to the Journal.
