Tech Firms Will Increase Encryption of Customer Data

The largest US tech giants, such as Google, Facebook and Snapchat, continue to develop their own increased privacy technology while Apple is fighting the American government over encryption. This is not good news for authorities that also don’t like Apple’s secure iPhones currently being involved in the San Bernardino shooting investigation. It looks like the tech industry is going to back up their public support for Apple with action.


So, what steps are planned so far? For example, WhatsApp is going to expand its secure messaging service to encrypt voice calls in addition to its existing privacy features in the next few weeks. Facebook’s messaging service has about a billion monthly users. Besides, Facebook may also enhance security of its own Messenger tool. Then, Snapchat, the popular ephemeral messaging service, is also developing a secure messaging system. Finally, Google is searching for other uses for the technology behind its long-in-the-works encrypted email project.

The industry experts explain that usually, engineers at major tech firms have developed encrypted messaging products only to put them on the back burner because they can be hard to use. Now the business paradigm has changed and major companies hope the increased emphasis on encryption makes strong privacy tools a business advantage. By the way, the abovementioned projects were launched before Apple entered a court battle with the US government over whether it should help authorities to break into the shooter’s iPhone. Later in March, Apple will appear in a federal court to appeal the order. In the meantime, public opinion is divided over the case.

Industry watchers point out that WhatsApp has introduced strong encryption to its users back in 2014, which made it difficult for authorities to tap the messages within the service. The company has already faced problems: for example, Brazil authorities arrested a Facebook (parent company) executive after WhatsApp’s refusal to provide the messages of drug traffickers. The messaging service already offers Android and iOS users encrypted messaging and is going to also encrypt voice calls and group messages in the near future.

Google also announced a project called End to End a couple years ago, which allows sending encrypted emails, where only the sender and recipient could decode them.

SirSeedsAlot avatarCompanies are doing this so they can get money from the Feds when handing over our data. He who monopolizes the information has the upper hand.

Carjacker avatarIt's all smoke and mirrors. Don't believe the hype. It's all a publicity campaign to make the sheep sleep well at night and trust their Authoritarian Governments blindly.
