Apple has been criticized for storing user data on Chinese servers




Apple has confirmed that it stores the data of Chinese customers in data centers located in China. At the same time, the company said that it “never compromised the security” of its customers or their data.





Apple said it complies with Chinese law regarding the storage of its citizen's data. However, according to one of the experts, in this way the company actually “passes the keys” to the Chinese government, which has long been accused of using technology to monitor its citizens and mass surveillance.

“I would have long felt uncomfortable [using Apple products] if I had been critical of the Chinese government,” said Professor Michael Posner, a former Obama administration official and director of the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University. — I wouldn't have any confidence that the data I put in the cloud using Apple services are protected by privacy.” According to him, by placing encrypted data on servers inside China, Apple “ plays by Chinese rules.”
