Google Plus fue solo un "clon de mierda"

The authorities absolutely want back doors for WhatsApp, Facebook and company.

Facebook wants to restructure its messaging platforms and provide more security and privacy with encryption. WhatsApp is already equipped with end-to-end encryption, but the US authorities want to have a built-in backdoor for this. The authorities argue, of course, with the fight against crime, especially the fight against child abuse. The United States, Great Britain, and Australia are working to meet these demands. […]


Facebook wants to restructure its messaging platforms and provide more security and privacy with encryption. WhatsApp is already equipped with end-to-end encryption, but the US authorities want to have a built-in backdoor for this. The authorities argue, of course, with the fight against crime, especially the fight against child abuse. The United States, Britain, and Australia are working together to meet these demands, and specifically, they turn to Mark Zuckerberg.

Authorities are not fans of encryption

Of course, worlds collide here. While access to the messages would be quite useful and understandable for law enforcement officers, full encryption and its benefits should of course not be ignored. WhatsApp encrypts and decrypts chats directly on users’ devices, meanwhile access is not possible, neither through Facebook nor by the authorities.

Facebook plans to merge their messaging platforms at the base, so Instagram and Messenger should also be fully encrypted. In any case, such encryption only makes sense if it is also fully integrated, therefore not with possible access for strangers.
