As Apple continues its fight, government efforts to break its iPhone encryptions. The founder of Facebook is speaking out on the controversy.

FOX's Gurnal Scott with more:

Mark Zuckerberg has spoken publicly for the first time at a mobile operators' conference in Spain about the U.S. government's request to hack iPhone encryptions.

He said he doesn't feel compromising privacy makes us more secure:

(Zuckerberg) "I don't think requiring back doors into encryption is either going to be an effective way to increase security or is really the right thing to do for the direction the world is going in."

Zuckerberg's stand differs from Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who says allowing the hack would set a good precedent. Demonstrations are happening at Apple stores nationwide supporting the company's stand on privacy.
