MI5 Chief Condemns Snapchat and WhatsApp

MI5 SNAPCHAT

Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, has condemned popular encrypted sexting apps such as Snapchat and WhatsApp for allowing terrorists to communicate freely. Speaking in his first live interview, Parker demanded that technology companies provide the government access to their secure communication services. Good luck selling that to the Randian libertarians in Silicon Valley…

“Shifts in technology and particularity internet technology and the use of encryption and so on, are creating a situation where law enforcement agencies and security agencies can no longer obtain under proper legal warrant the contents of communications between people they have reason to believe are terrorists. I think that is a very serious issue, it requires that there is a legal framework to authorise, but it also requires the cooperation of the companies who run and provide services over the internet that we all use.”
