Rubio: If Apple Helps FBI Hack iPhone, Backdoor Could Fall into Criminal Hands

‘If we passed a law that required them to create a back door, criminals could figure that out and use it against you’

RUBIO: "If we passed a law that required them to create a back door, criminals could figure that out and use it against you. There’s already encrypted software that exists and we’d not be able to stop that. There would still be encryption capabilities. They just wouldn’t be American but people in this country could have it. That’s why it’s such a difficult issue. On the flip side, there might be valuable information on that phone from the San Bernardino killers that’s could lead us to preventing future crimes or future terrorist attacks."
