Congress Still Not Satisfied with Apple’s Privacy Protections, Requests Briefing

VentureBeat: Congress has received a letter from Apple CEO Tim Cook detailing the company’s privacy policies, but the legislators say it doesn’t answer all of their questions. Representatives G.K. Butterfield and Henry Waxman have sent another missive to Cook, requesting that the company defend its practices in person.

The Congressmen are concerned about apps which may copy personal information from mobile devices without user permission. “Concerns have been raised about the manner in which apps can access photographs on your mobile devices and tools provided by Apple to consumers to prevent unwanted online tracking,” they wrote. “To help us understand these issues, we request that you make available representatives to brief our staff on the Energy and Commerce Committee.”
