Decrypting Amber Rudd
Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter & YouTube (Google/Alphabet, Inc) have formed the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism and Amber Rudd is asking them to quietly drop end-to-end encryption from their products. You should not believe a single word any of those companies tells you about end-to-end encryption or privacy on their platforms ever again. PS. WhatsApp is owned by Facebook.
> WhatsApp is owned by Facebook.
It's a little too easy to imagine Facebook just taking out the primary feature of WhatsApp silently and nobody noticing.
great, now I gotta figure out if Signal's still safe and (thinking ahead) look to see if anybody has created a properly open-source end-to-end encryption app yet
(cannot remember RN if Signal is, but IIRC it isn't)
