At BlackBerry, we make it our business not to know your business. This mindset has led us to be one of the most trusted mobile security software providers in the world. We believe privacy is paramount. It’s because of this I felt the need to address recent news surrounding the FCC’s Internet privacy rule which would have banned Internet providers from collecting, storing, sharing, and selling certain types of customer information without those customers’ consent.
While it is great the U.S. government is taking steps to ease regulatory burdens on business, encroaching on privacy is something everyone in the tech industry should stand up against. By working together to protect our customers’ private information we can send a clear message that Americans’ privacy is not for sale.
