Government Proposes Law To Access Encrypted Messages

The government of India has proposed a new law that would intercept encrypted messages on instant messaging apps like WhatsApp and Signal. When users flock to a new app in 2022, the first thing they check for is end-to-end encryption. This feature blocks anyone except the sender and receiver from reading the conversation. WhatsApp claims it only has access to a few messages if a report is registered. Otherwise, nobody can access and read the chats.
