why creating a backdoor to phone is a bad idea

The reason why backdoor in phones is a bad idea

FBI wanted Apple to give them access to one terror suspect's phone. And then for a few more. And then some more. Apple refused. Logically, it would make sense to give them that to catch the bad guy. But there's a good reason not to. What if the government will start using it the wrong way?

According to BBC, "Several prominent journalists and activists in Mexico have filed a complaint accusing the government of spying on them by hacking their phones."

These people were targeted using a spyware meant to be used against criminals and terrorists.

The Mexican government denies it, their spokesman said that "The government categorically denies that any of its members carries out surveillance or interference in communications of defenders of human rights, journalists, anti-corruption activists or any other person without prior judicial authorization."

Based on a report, the software that was used is called Pegasus and was sold to Mexico by an Israeli company to help investigate criminals and terrorists. According to New York Times, in addition to having the feature to monitor all activity on the phone, it can also be used to activate the phone's camera and microphone.

The next time you don't understand why anyone wouldn't want to create a backdoor for the government agencies, that's why.
