I know...

I know that the police can get a court order and hack in.

I know that spooks here in the UK are, theoretically and sometimes, obliged to get one too but I suspect that they don't always.

Neither of those things worry me too much but the thought of being forces to use insecure systems is a very different prospect.

Why? Because corporations, other criminals, political groups and other unwanteds will be able to do it more easily.
