In Arkansas, the year 2015 November 22nd, Collins Victor who fathered five kids was found dead in a boiling tub. Unfortunately, there was no strong proof found when the owner of the location where the diseased was found was arrested. After a few days, it emerged that the authority was searching to a close Amazon Echo in helping come up with the solution for the case.
Alexa was asked whether the device would give a soluble answer to the case held although, that is not evident to what the police were looking for. The machine is believed to have gathered what the police were desperately looking forward to seeing and hearing. The Amazon has been hiding the recordings of the scene of murder, although it was plugged in ,and proved that it was listening to all that had happened. The police are continuing to emphasize about the Amazon sharing the important information, and that is the first thing that the Amazon has ever agreed to this year in March.
Although there was a confession sent to retrieve the data which could help in giving evidence to solve the crime, the Amazon still resisted the law enforcement. That could have only been understood only by using business and perception of information privacy. Moreover, recording talks and action is not what the Echo was created for so that the Amazon can use it as evidence to accuse clients. The trust between the customers and the Amazon could only get destroyed by that instead. In that situation, the firm already surrendered and allowed the government to reach to the data.
Once again, there was a similar case that happened, and the world of tech was held in the grip. In December 2015, there was a gun shooting in San Bernardino. Since the FBI wanted the way to reach some data from one of the shooter’s iPhone, they sent an order from the court which was demanding Apple to obey and give out the information. However, Apple disagreed to that claiming that it was to their client’s best interest to keep his/her data confident. Apple has proven that no information of its customers can reach to the authority or any other person without the owner’s permission. Eventually, the scene was finally ended by a third party who unlocked the cell phone. Due to both scenarios, there were some crucial questions about the data confidentiality nature and the responsibilities of the firms to their clients. Many can now tell why it is important to let out data that the police can use to put criminals in jail.
