Should tech companies be held responsible for forced updates and verification that results in loss of life?

A friend of mine needed me to record him on the phone because he felt he was being followed by people that meant to do him serious harm. I asked him to describe out load what they look like, Car plate numbers etc. Voice recorder refused to start before performing a 8 min update. Tech companies have no right to do this. Who the hell do they think they are? Isn't this reckless endangerment?

Tech is just unreliable these days.
