Facebook in Deep Trouble, Faces Stoppage in End To End Encryption

Officials across the UK and some segments of the US are planning to launch a new attack on End To End Encryption. The home minister is determined to push Facebook further down to rescind its activities.

It has impeded Facebook’s rise in the real world. Home Minister Priti Patel is planning to deliver a keynote speech focused on exposing the ills of End To End Encryption. The council is asking the company for stricter regulations on the technology.

The reports assert that technology needs to do more to protect the best interests of the children around us. End To End Encryption only works between the receiver and the sender and no third gets involved in the act. The technology providing the facility could not access the platform. The Home Ministry statement comes following the decision of Facebook to roll out an impromptu End To End Encryption feature to all its messaging platforms.

A report will release by the NSPCC later this week, which would affirm the government’s notion of expressly targeting encryption. It recommends that the government is planning to legitimate a new bill for the concerning issue. Online Safety Bill will impose a duty of care on online platforms. The circulation of the bill across the state is mandated to follow, and it will coerce the tech companies to share data about online child abuse in their filing.

The Online Safety Bill averts the tech companies that use the end-to-end encryption feature are required to exhibit how efficiently they are tackling the spread of harmful content on their platforms.“Ofcom will have to meet a series of tests before it could take action on a regulated platform,” says Andy Burrows, NSPCC’s head of child safety online policy.
