Cellebrite Pitches its iPhone Hacking Tools as COVID-19 Surveillance Solution

Cellebrite, a company known for its iPhone hacking tools, presents its products to governments as a monitoring alternative for contact tracking.

If someone is positive, authorities can transfer the patient’s location and contact information, making it easier to “quarantine the right people,” according to an email from Cellebrite to the Delhi police this month. this one.

This is usually done with permission, the email said. But in justified cases, such as when a patient breaks a law against public gatherings, police can use the tools to break into a confiscated device, Cellebrite said.

I feel many are unhappy that Apple and Google’s solution is private and signing up. Companies like Cellebrite and Palantir cannot pass up such an opportunity.
