Apple decides to drop new Safari bookmark end-to-end encryption

Written by News Sateek

Apple introduces end-to-end encryption for bookmarks in Safari at the beginning of this month. Now he has reportedly decided to remove this additional protection.
Earlier this month, Apple’s support documentation was updated to show that Safari Bookmarks had been updated to have the same end-to-end encryption as Apple Card transactions and even Memoji.

Safari is an Apple graphical web browser based primarily on open source software assets, including WebKit. It first appeared in Mac OS X Panther in 2003 and was later added to the iPhone and iPod Touch in 2007 with iPhone OS.
Apple and other tech giants have been under constant pressure to ditch end-to-end encryption entirely from local governments. It will give the government and law enforcement access to all data.
