Law enforcement should be allowed to read encrypted messages, says Barr

AG William Barr has called for the opening up of encrypted messaging apps such as WhatsApp to scrutiny by law enforcement agencies. Apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram allow users to send messages that are coded so only the sender and user can read them. Barr argued that allowing encrypted messages ensures the internet becomes a law-free zone, giving criminals a freehand.

Barr is probably just holding DOJ line but it's wrong and fundamentally anti American.

Having a backdoor in encryption means it's not encrypted. He can get fucked and I will never use encryption software with a known backdoor.
