"The U.S. government is trying to force Facebook Inc (FB.O) to break the encryption in its popular Messenger app so law enforcement may listen to a suspect’s voice conversations in a criminal probe, three people briefed on the case said, resurrecting the issue of whether companies can be compelled to alter their products to enable surveillance. "

@Linux Yeah.
It's difficult. I still have profile there.
But my tactic is to use the net without it using me.

Facebook will not last 5 more years. The only division that is more or less safe is WhatsApp

@trollslayer Not so simple. Whatsapp is far from safe.
There are several records of how the network can collect "encrypted" communications data.
Even the backup of the database in google drive (now standard) is unencrypted.

"...the company warns, those backups won’t be encrypted. That means that the chats, photos and videos sent via the app and backed up on Google Drive are accessible to Google, but also to hackers that manage to compromise users’ Google Drive account."
