So where is the antidote ?
One odd thing about all the catastrophising over dimwits like Patels pronouncements, is the lack of any apparent initiative to actually provide end-to-end encryption. On the basis that I don't actually believe anyone currently does. I start with a distrust of iOS and Android and any app built thereon.
And as for the notion that Facebook is somehow the most secure platform around ? Are you having a giraffe ?
