Safari bookmarks now get end-to-end encryption, improving security as iCloud syncs between users' devices.

Despite what some columnists say, Apple describes end-to-end encryption in its iCloud security overview as providing "the highest level of data security." It has now extended that to the bookmarks saved, and synced between devices, in Safari.

First spotted by Reddit user SoleSolace, this gives bookmarks the same security protection as Safari History and iCloud Tabs.

Apple and other Big Tech firms have continually been under pressure to allow governments backdoor access to end-to-end encrypted data, thereby removing all of the security it offers.
