NY Anti-Encryption Bill Would Force Backdoors Into Every Smartphone

While this is still in the committee stage, certain smartphone companies will have to make drastic changes if it ever manages to get signed.

The proposed law would also make phone manufacturers pay a fine of $2,500 (آ£1,736) for every phone they sell that cannot be unlocked. This would result in fines reaching into the tens of millions for companies like Apple, whose devices are designed to have no backdoor, and are only unlockable by their owner.
