    Many thanks, I believe it complements well what was written before. ;)

    Like @Swejuggalo said, where does it end? How "good" the intentions might be, is it up to a private party to be on the seat of an "investigator" and what is the next step?

    Taking the seat of the prosecutor?
    Sitting down in the Judge's seat?

    Why just child abuse, not terrorism (would really be walking the edge as what some counties call a terrorist, is called a journalist in other countries), Tax evaders (Apple?? Nèh, guess not). Hey but maybe jaywalking might be an idea?

    They shouldn't be allowed to do this. No company must be allowed to do this.
    Apple already has a history were Siri was used for secretly listening to what users were doing.
    All that they can do is educate their customers to keep phones out of reach of underaged and hope for the best.

    Total loss of privacy and it will result in a lot of errors . And at that point innocent people will be given bad stigmas. Ai will bias social score innocent people who will have hard time fixing it.

    No, I'm obviously not against it and yes I am willing to give up what little privacy I have to fight against these complete and utter c***s.
    But I don't trust Apple either.
    So if they really do catch and seek out these totally repugnant excuses for human beings, I'm happy to go along with that, even if my, by now non existent, privacy is forfeited.
    Catch the nonces.:mad:

    the problem is ya give an inch they brand it inch™ and take a mile setting exorbitant parameters of distance YOU agreed to. i have NO faith in their ability to limit it to doing only the good deed it was designed for bypassing privacy barriers to get filth off the streets but all the ways it could be missused planted evidence covertly to incriminate the innocent for maybe even political reasons offering the service to 3rd parties which makes it even MORE Dangerous. trust me i want rapists & child molesters to be removed from thier "feeding grounds" too! but providing an easily misused system like this not to mention privacy violations is just wrong move for America and beyond and also the chances they would make it easier for any other manufacturers to implement is just DEVASTATING.
