It would not surprise me in the slightest if this was just an attempt to make the masses believe we are more secure than we actually are. In the phone world at least, yes, Facebook have enabled e2e encryption by default and google push out regular security updates but, like a recent post spoke about, the updates are not filtering down to the end user instantly like they should be. Also, one minute I hear iOS is rock-solid and impenetrable, next it's been split apart worse than a bride on the wedding night, then it's secure again. Is this just yet another attempt at public manipulation? Or are they (3 letter acronyms) actually as fucked as 'The Clapper' implies?
