The known messenger belonging to the Facebook company can refuse through enciphering of correspondences. Thus, intelligence agencies will get access to all messages of users Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS the Russian news agencies have reported that in the WhatsApp messenger through enciphering of messages of users won't be applied any more. As a result of intelligence agency will be able easily to get access to all correspondences. Allegedly creators of a messenger have taken such step according to the order of Facebook which possesses WhatsApp. According to the founder of the company Mark Zuckerberg, the relevant requirement to social networks was made by the American authorities. These messages aren't officially confirmed in any way, but what will be if it is the truth? Georgy Bovt argues on it. It is that since 2019 there will be a new version of the application of WhatsApp with the weakened enciphering that really is able to allow intelligence agencies to obtain information on the users interesting them both for prevention of acts of terrorism, and in others. Pressure, first of all the American intelligence agencies, on Mark Zuckerberg's corporation has amplified after the known scandal with so-called Russian intervention in elections in the USA and also revelations of the British firm Cambridge Analytica working at elections on Trump's team through which there was a mass leakage of personal data of users of Facebook. "Why to these data and not to flow away to us too?" — intelligence agencies have quickly realized. Though it is known that the social network already cooperates with competent authorities, providing them the relevant information by a court decision. However, in Russia so far such cooperation wasn't set therefore domestic VKontake remains the exclusive supplier of criminal cases for "likes" and "reposts" among social networks. Also the WhatsApp messenger which provided trainings for law enforcement authorities and judges in a number of the countries of Europe and in Brazil recently cooperates with law enforcement authorities of the USA and other countries, training them as it is correct to make inquiries. The messenger has begun through enciphering of all messages two years ago. Facebook promised the same service, however hasn't taken this step. Perhaps, Zuckerberg just wants to reduce both messengers to a common denominator. WhatsApp, as well as Facebook, regardless of through enciphering, at the request of vessels and law enforcement authorities as they claim, provide the following information on users: real name, IP address, e-mail address, start date of use of a messenger and time of the last login. With the judicial warrant for a search photos of a profile, information on the connected groups of users, that is about contacts of the subscriber, however all the same not content of messages can be also provided, he doesn't reveal. However, at the modern level of work with Big Data identification of necessary content — an equipment question. Until a question of decoding of through enciphering completely, it is how possible to understand from open information, nevertheless it is solved or information on such success is secret. Conduct
