Edward Snowden Says, “Don’t Use Allo”

You may recall that Edward Snowden has expertise in privacy. The former NSA whistleblower has looked at Google’s decision to turn off end-to-end encryption in its new messaging apps and found the decision to be slightly baffling. It led Snowden to say: “Google’s decision to disable end-to-end encryption by default in its new #Allo chat app is dangerous, and makes it unsafe. Avoid it for now.”

It’s not clear whether or not Google has plans to introduce end-to-end encryption into Allo, but until it happens you might want to heed Snowden’s advice and give it a wide berth.
