encryption

Tell me a secret…

…and I’ll explain how encrypted messaging works.

If you send a message using end-to-end encrypted messaging apps — like iMessage, WhatsApp, Signal or Wickr — it’s basically impossible for law enforcement agencies (or anyone else) to intercept and read it.

You won’t be surprised to hear they’re not too happy about that.

But do you know how encryption actually works? We’re here to help, and along the way we’ll also show you how governments, like our very own, might try to gain access.

Don’t worry, it’s not that complicated.
