Why The U.S. Government And Big Tech Disagree On Encryption

All what you text “privately” with your mobile phone, is in fact totally open, stored under your profile at the secret services, and can be used against you once you try to step up in life. Now it’s a show time, who will better pretend to hide the backdoors all tech giants and apps must have by the law to authorities.
Encryption takes data like a text message or email and converts it into code to prevent viewers other than the desired recipient from seeing the original message. It’s gotten companies like Apple and Facebook in hot water with the U.S. government for prohibiting some (but not all) governments from accessing that data.
