Encryption on iPhones, Facebook Apparently ‘Petrified’ the NSA

Stronger encryption in Apple’s iPhones and on websites like Facebook has “petrified” the U.S. government because it has made it harder to spy on communications, Glenn Greenwald, the writer who first reported on Edward Snowden’s stolen files, told CNBC.

One quote in the article caught my eye: “If you’re a Facebook executive or an Apple executive, you’re extremely worried that the next generation of users are going to be vulnerable to the pitch from Brazilian, and Korean and German social media companies where they advertise and say don’t use Facebook and Google because they’ll give your data to the NSA.”
