Apple, an American technology company, has begun working on encrypting data of iPhone users. The tech giant is dire in adapting anti-snooping policy that will, in turn, safeguard iPhone users data from law enforcement agencies, as reported by the Indian daily news, The Economic Times.

As per the reports of the British daily newspaper, The Telegraph, Apple has owned the patent rights of the technology which can encrypt information between a mobile network and iPhone mobile.

The technology would hinder so-called Stingray boxes, which mimic phone masts and can be used to track phone users locations and listen in on phone calls, informed the report.

Basically, Stingrays are not a tightly secured medium to retain information. They can be easily breached by hackers and, in turn, let mobile users information accessible to hackers. By putting end-to-end user encryption, Apple will restrict Stingrays boxes to obtain users sensitive information.

At present, Apple is facing pressure globally to enable law enforcement agencies to make data accessible from encrypted iPhones. Countries like Australia and Britain have passed ordinance pertaining to this matter, while India is still deciding on to frame laws so as to have access to the users information, as reported by the Indian daily news, The Economic Times.
