The American company Facebook is planning to disable encryption of correspondence and phone calls in WhatsApp messenger. On August 18, according to the portal Akket.
The US government requires us companies to weaken encryption of all data in Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram that law enforcement had the opportunity in real time to access all of the data.
The authorities are concerned that every year crimes are increasingly committed using electronic means.
