The founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, said that he is sympathetic to Apple with the position that the company has taken.
FBI demands that Apple disable a security feature that is on the iPhone of a dead murderer.
Zuckerberg said that he did not agree with the idea of authorities having back doors to any phone so as to bypass encryption protection.
However, one of the gunman’s victims lawyer supports the demands that the federal bureau have.
A former judge and lawyer, Larson Stephen, said that he will file a paperwork to Apple asking them to cooperate.
In the support of his stand, the lawyer said that the victims were targeted by terrorists and that it is their right to know the reason for this.
Even though he did not disclose the number of victims that he is representing, he said that there will be no charge imposed on to them. His services are entirely free.
Mr. Zuckerberg spoke while he was in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress technology show.
“I am not of the opinion that a backdoor to encryption will in any way help to boost security or it is a right thing to be done,” he stated.
“We sympathize with Tim and Apple as a whole.”
He also added that Facebook was determined to see to it that terrorism is stopped but maintained his company is for encryption.
In an earlier statement, the social network said that the order made by the court had the potential of bringing about “a chilling precedent.”
Twitter and Google leaders have also voiced their support for Apple.
Last Dec, a gunman Farook and his wife Malik opened fire in California killing 14 people and injuring 22 others.
Tim described the orders from the FBI as being “unprecedented” and “dangerous.”
He added that if the firm has to comply, it would be forced to build a new operating system.
He also said that guaranteeing the safety of such a powerful tool entailed never creating it.
We are after leads
FBI published a statement on Sunday saying that everything was all about victims as well as justice.
They want to guess the pass code of the terrorist and still the phone to remain in good contact without self destructing or taking too long for them to get it right.
They do not intend to break the encryption of any person.
The FBI is of the opinion that the phone could have clues on how to get more information concerning the terrorists. They will not e able to stand before the survivors or themselves if they ignore the lead that they currently have.
