More on backdooring (or not) WhatsApp
@paul Interesting. I must confess I believed the story. I'm still going to ditch WA when I switch over to my new phone, though. I just don't trust their assurances. As the article states, they've lied so many times before. Also, if they're not going to datamine WA, then what did FB buy it for?
@adz Personally I think that intelligence agencies will be targeting the OS rather than individual apps in future.
Why try to backdoor every messaging app when you can just have the OS send decrypted data whenever a messaging app is in use?
iOS & GApps both have a unique user id which makes targeting easier too. No need to find out what your handle on messaging app x is this week.
