Completly free adult backdoor
Restricting this freedom for terrorists would mean restricting it for all of us. When Whats App co-founder Jan Koum launched the messenger’s encryption service, he explained his personal connection to the principle of privacy: ‘The desire to protect people’s private communication is one of the core beliefs we have at Whats App, and for me, it’s personal. Today, as the government puts increased pressure on internet companies to censor content and store data, it seems our political leaders are keen to foster a climate of ‘nothing to hide, nothing to fear’.I grew up in the USSR during Communist rule, and the fact that people couldn’t speak freely is one of the reasons my family moved to the United States.’ In arguing for access to private messages in the name of improving security, Rudd ignores the fact that the use of encryption on Whats App is itself a security tool, for the more than one billion people who use Whats App. Indeed, in her interview with Marr, Rudd harks back to the good old days when spying was so much simpler: ‘It used to be that people would steam open envelopes or just listen in on phones when they wanted to find out what people were doing.’ But the notion that if we have nothing to hide we have nothing to fear is ridiculous. Everyone has information about themselves that they wish to keep completely private – and there is nothing wrong with that.
But there are much wider implications to increased security that need to be considered. Last year, the Investigatory Powers Act, legislation spearheaded by then home secretary Theresa May, made it law for communications companies to store their customers’ browsing data for a year.
People should have the right to privacy, and the freedom to communicate with others without worrying that the government is looking over their shoulder. This data can be accessed by public bodies as unrelated to security as the Food Standards Agency.
There are more surveillance cameras in Britain than in China.
The arguments for such extreme levels of surveillance are always the same: the cameras act as a deterrent to criminals; they help catch criminals after a crime has been committed.
This has been labelled ‘completely unacceptable’ by Rudd.
Speaking on BBC TV’s Andrew Marr Show, she accused Whats App of providing a ‘place for terrorists to hide’.

Some time ago, I shared some information about raising livestock.
Furthermore, if companies include built-in loopholes to their encryption tools, then it negates the entire point of the service.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
