Australian police can now access the encrypted messages
December 7 , 2018
Government of Australia has passed laws that have led to fresh controversies. While the government suggests that the measure is necessary to combat terrorism and crime, the cyber security experts claim how it could become a weak point for social applications. Whatsapp, Facebook messenger have all provided their users with end-to-end encryption, to ensure complete privacy. No service provider can scramble the messages, but the technology is being misused for criminal activities. But, now after the declaration of Australian laws, companies have to abide by, else they can be fined.
