Re: Not a moment too soon

I don't see a problem forcing Facebook to build a backdoor that the authorities can use - nobody should be using any Facebook owned or run app for anything they want to keep confidential (same with Google). There will always be other apps and systems that can be used for greater assurance of confidentiality.

The way Five Eyes are going, only those wanting to keep their communications confidential for nefarious (aka criminal or terrorist) reasons will be able to be free from prying as they'll use systems that aren't meeting the governments' rules...
