How secure is Apple's iCloud encryption?

Episode 1414 (1:17:43)

Byron from Minnesota
Sign into iCloud

Byron helps seniors with technology and he suggests getting an iPhone and using dynamic type because it will make the fonts larger. They can also FaceTime with the grand kids. Leo says that accessibility on the iPhone is the best in the business.

Byron also wants to know how secure Apple Pages is. Leo says that while Apple does have security, they do have access to the data kept in the cloud and can unlock it and give to law enforcement if asked. He isn't sure it's "trust no one." And if they have a password recovery technique, they have the password. Apple's encryption is very good other than that. If he's storing in the cloud, he should try SpiderOak. That really is "trust no one" security.
