Cook said, "Platforms and algorithms that promised to improve our lives can actually magnify our worst human tendencies." Cook warned, "Rogue actors and even governments have taken advantage of user trust to deepen divisions, incite violence, and even undermine our shared sense of what is true and what is false. This crisis is real. It is not imagined, or exaggerated, or crazy." Cook endorsed the GDPR and called for comprehensive privacy legislation in the US.
