UK wants to ban encryption. Privacy is for criminals and bad people. Encryption is bad. The British government wants to ban WhatsApp from using end-to-end encryption. Join me to debate the state of surveillance and privacy in the United Kingdom.

End-to-end encryption is important to protect your information and online privacy. Without it anybody can read your messages without even hacking your accounts.

With this kind of approach to cyber security, it’s only a matter of years before Equifax breaches will happen to all kinds of data collecting programs. And soon it will be in the news that all of your whatsapp, Facebook, and Gmail messages are available to read and search by your real name for free leaked somewhere on the Internet. It will be too late then for the outrage of embarrassed spouses, fired employees, ruined relationships, jeopardized business deals, destroyed careers, doxxed activists, and depressed kids having their mistakes public in front of everyone.
