Banned? Seriously? In UK? This is the reaction of citizens of UK after the Cameroon government announced that they would pass a legislation in the UK parliament.
The reason is due to strict laws in UK, owing to the strict laws on social media and online messaging.
The government want to stop people from sending encrypted messages.
Not only WhatsApp popular services like imessage and snapchat would also come under scanner in coming weeks.
With the new investigatory powers bill, internet service providers internet companies like Facebook, Google and others would be required to keep a tab on the users activity.
The government is very cautious after London attacks and in fellow Europe countries like France
David Cameroon reportedly said that “in our country, do we want to allow a means of communication between people which we cannot read? My answer to that is ‘NO, we must not “
Though the complete details of the bills are still undisclosed, it means that the government will now get to spy on the users irrespective whether they are crime suspects or not. Sounds creepy doesn’t it?
