Apple gave the FBI access to the iCloud account of a protester

Apple cooperated with the FBI to give access to a protester’s data stored in Apple’s iCloud. Though it is normal for a cooperation like Apple to comply with official search warrants this example shows how deeply personal access can be gained into a person’s private life as any data stored in one of the big cloud providers is fully accessible to the company behind it and therefore also to any law enforcement agency.
