WhatsApp: Apple is bad for scanning for CSAM. This is the wrong approach and we would *never* do this.
WhatsApp (but quieter) in 2018: we also do this and have since 2011. judiciary.senate.gov/imo/med…
if they are, how did they only report ~200 images last year? My read was that they very much have not been doing this proactively, and the handful of cases were literally opportunistic and largely accidental/incidental to repairs.
Which is precisely why this is wildly disingenuous from Apple and intended to progress to scanning E2E messages. There's no reason to do this on the user's phone when they can already do it in their own cloud!
