Popular US comedy talk-show host John Oliver has put forward his take on the Apple-FBI encryption fight.

The FBI wants tech giant Apple to develop a system that would allow the law enforcement agency to break into a locked iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino attackers.

But the tech company has opposed the demand as it claims this would risk making all its devices vulnerable.

Digital rights activists have also opposed the FBI's call, saying that once a back-door is opened on the Apple tech, there would be no way to close it.

Lawmakers in the US, though, have already called for digital experts to study the issue of access to encrypted devices.

Against this backdrop, John Oliver this week has addressed the issue on his popular show.

And below is a video from his official YouTube page that addresses this heated debate.
