After a summit in Australia at the end of August, that tech companies should give access to their data and communications. Why? Because “privacy is not absolute”. Why? Well, the pretext is to catch pedophiles and terrorists, as always. In effect, it means being able to spy on citizens and get their personal data at will.
It’s not the first time that the governments of 5-eyes countries have asked the tech giants to give access to certain data – you might remember the San Bernardino terror attack (2015) and Apple’s refusal to give FBI access to one of the shooter’s iPhones.
But what’s different this time?
Soo, this seems worrying to say the least.
