The FBI failed to unlock 7,000 encrypted devices

It's taking a while for the FBI to figure out how to unlocked encrypted devices. Over the course of an 11-month period, the FBI failed to gain access to around 7,000 encrypted mobile devices. It's disappointing news for an agency that's been stifled by encryption. In 2015, the FBI sought access to the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone, but when Apple wouldn't budge, the agency paid a third-party to unlock it. I get it, there's a balance that needs to be struck between encryption and the importance of giving us the tools we need to keep the public safe."
