Microsoft‘s former chief privacy adviser says he does not have faith in the security of the software company’s technology, following revelations about the US’s NSA spy agency published in the Guardian.
“I don’t trust Microsoft now,” he said, adding that he only uses open source software where he can examine the underlying code. He also said he has not carried a mobile phone for two years.
In June the Guardian revealed that an NSA program called Prism could demand data from a number of technology companies at will using court orders that were never rejected.
