WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart has called Apple’s new child safety feature very concerning and “a setback for people’s privacy”.

He took to Twitter to express concerns and noted that instead of focusing on making it easy for people to report problematic content, Apple has built a software that scan all the private photos on a user’s phone. Cathcart said the approach comes with so many problems.
