Facebook Whatsapp

According to reports from Bloomberg, Facebook and WhatsApp will have to provide the police of the United Kingdom with access to encrypted users’ messages under a treaty that the British government will stipulate with that of the United States.

The treaty in question, which should be signed next month, seems to also cover other social platforms based in the US and will cover the sharing of information on investigations into serious crimes (such as terrorism and pedophilia).

The authorities of both countries have long believed that the encryption of these services is a tool to protect dangerous criminals, asking them to be able to access information through a special procedure.

It will be interesting to find out how Facebook (which has already expressed its disappointment about the possible introduction of backdoor tools) will implement this treaty and if other countries decide to adopt similar solutions.
