Apple may had promised earlier that user’s iMessage conversation will be safe and secured with some encryption and cannot be reached by either user or user’s friends.
But due to some Law enforcement, the document obtained by the intercept stated that user’s data leave behind a log of which phone number you are poised to contact. And every time you type a number into your iPhone for a text conversation, the Messages app contacts. Apple servers to determine whether to route a given message over the ubiquitous SMS system.
This data log includes the IP-address and the date-time when user enters a number. It’s just only for the criminal investigation.
Apple’s iMessage is encrypted and decrypted as a security point of view that further secured the contact number till other contact launched.
Apple is considered most for security and privacy of users’ data and the company stores logs for 30 days. This revelation proves that the technology giant may share the details with law enforcement agencies which could secure multiple logs and compile a record with your contacts.
