Facebook and its privacy issues: What Did Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak say about it?

You have realized that you need to do it but you are afraid to do it. Maybe you are thinking that it will hurt your friends or family if you would delete your Facebook account.

However, Apple’s co-founder, Steve Wozniak is worried because of Facebook and its existence on its device.

TMZ’s airport staff made a video in which he said that he was worried about everything when they asked him that if his devices are listening to him. Woz continued that it is not possible to stop trade-off the personal information and the world is stuck “with being surveilled for the rest of our lives.” While painting the dark picture of modern gadgets that can record the heartbeat and conversation, he answered that his iPhone would not listen to him because Tim Cook cannot do this.

In TMZ’s video, the co-founder was asked about ways to bring privacy’s reign back. He replied "Why don't they give me a choice? Let me pay a certain amount and you'll keep my data more secure and private."



According to Woz whenever he likes something on Facebook, his preferences are relayed to advertisers. Therefore, he stated that there are different kinds of people and some benefits are worth the loss of privacy.


Moreover, he said to TMZ that people, like him, should abandon Facebook to protect their information from advertisers.

Currently, 15 million American users have abandoned Facebook accounts because of the privacy issue. Besides this, according to one of the survey, there will be less Facebook users than its non-users in the next 50 years.

Steve Wozniak was one of the main figures who joined Delete Facebook movement and removed the app. Many teens and youngsters supported him who preferred filter-centered apps over Mark Zuckerberg’s social network.
