Obama popularises phone fetishizing

Obama thinks that having a secure mobile device amounts to having a phone fetish. In another bizare move by the soon-to-be-ex president of the USA, the commandeer in chief has been quoted as being strongly against strongly encrypted mobile devices to the point where full near unbreakable, in the current computing environment, secure devices is basically people just worshipping their phone. How will we catch pedophiles? Why do we allow terrorists to get away with protecting their secrets? The US goverment must be able to access anyone's files (papers in the constitution) at any time and those who stand in the way must be wrong. How dare people walk around with a bank vault for their data that can not be easily copied.

His phone probably is secure, and only a redundant container of data stored elsewhere. I'm fairly certain that everything the president does is saved and archived for various reasons.

The security is anti non authorized access. That's all he wants for everyone else too. A warrant says that the government has access to the data in the device. Its a system we've had in the constitution since the beginning. I'm really baffled at why people oppose this on an ideological basis. On a practical basis, I understand the argument that once there is a way for the government to gain access, that could open up access for everyone else as well. But thats the only argument that makes sense.
