Tim Cook: Agreement with Google puts the confidentiality aside

Apple chief executive Tim Cook defended his company's deal with Google, despite criticizing the largest search engine for its attitude toward user data.

His comments were transmitted in the context of a interview on HBO, and the question was why he decided to pay billions of dollars to Google to become Apple's default search engine, despite wanting to protect users' privacy.Tim Cook

Cook highlighted Apple's security and privacy measures from the Safari browser while pointing out that Apple device users will have access to the "best" search engine.

"I think Google's search engine is the best. Look at what we've done with the controls we've incorporated. We have a private web browsing, "said Cook. "We have a smart tracker prevention. What we have tried to do is find ways to help our users. It's not the perfect solution. But it will help a lot. "

According to information, Apple will pay from 3 up to 9 billions of dollars for its deal with Google. With this agreement her search engine will become the default in the Safari browser, Siri web search and elsewhere.

Let's say there are other search engines, like her DuckDuckGo, focusing on privacy, but for Apple, Google's revenue from Google's services, coupled with Safari's "security" measures, seems to overcome privacy concerns.

Last month, Tim Cook warned that "our information is being directed against us and used against us." On Sunday, he said that some level of government regulation for Silicon Valley seems to be inevitable. "I am loyal to the free market, but we have to admit when the free market does not work. And here it does not work. I think it is inevitable and there will be some level of regulation. "
