Tim Cook took recently spoke at a Town Hall event with MSNBC and Recode.
He was once again asked about privacy and data concerns in wake of latest scandal Facebook is going through.
Cook told the audience that while he believed self-regulation is best in the case of these tech giants, “I think we’re beyond that.” Asked what he would do, were he in Zuckerberg’s position, he added, simply, “I wouldn’t be in this situation.”
This is not the first time Cook has spoken blatantly against social media giants like Facebook and Google. In an earlier statement in 2015, Apple executive said, “They’re gobbling up everything they can learn about you and trying to monetize it. We think that’s wrong. And it’s not the kind of company that Apple wants to be.”
Following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Cook said in an event in Beijing, “The ability of anyone to know what you’ve been browsing about for years, who your contacts are, who their contacts are, things you like and dislike and every intimate detail of your life — from my own point of view it shouldn’t exist. “The truth is, we could make a ton of money if we monetized our customer — if our customer was our product. We’ve elected not to do that.”
Apple believes privacy is a fundamental human right, so every Apple product is designed to:
Use on-device processing wherever possible
Limit the collection and use of data
Provide transparency and control over your information
Build on a strong foundation of security
