“The latest series of Apple’s iPhone will not only continue to cultivate numerous apps that track your location through GPS and transmit data directly back to corporations and government, but contain a fingerprint sensor that stores your fingerprint in order to purchase apps and unlock the phone for use,” Anthony Gucciardi writes for Storyleak.
“And that’s really just the beginning. As millions will most likely continue through the Apple food chain and purchase this phone, the NSA and bloated federal government at large will be beyond ecstatic,” Gucciardi writes. “Because after all, it’s a real dream come true for the Big Daddy government spy state. No longer will you actually need to be arrested to gather your fingerprints — we’re talking about millions nationwide willingly submitting their biometrics to a database that most certainly is accessible by Apple and big government.”
Gucciardi writes, “But don’t worry, the same company that has given away all of your chats and personal data through the NSA’s top secret PRISM program says that you’re perfectly safe… Of course Apple claims that the fingerprint scans will be ‘local’ on your hardware, but of course the NSA and FBI would not let such a precious database go to waste.”

MacDailyNews Note: According to Apple, “All fingerprint information is encrypted and stored within the secure enclave in our new A7 chip. Here it is locked away from everything else, accessible only by the Touch ID sensor. It’s never available to other software and it’s never stored on Apple servers or backed up to iCloud.”
