Facebook urged to rethink its plans for encryption

Today children’s organizations from over 100 hundred countries around the world publish a letter urging Facebook to rethink its plans on encryption. So far the story has been picked up and reported by the BBC, the Financial Times and the New York Times.  UK broadcast media and other newspapers are also picking it up, as are broadcast and print media outlets elsewhere. Bravo the NSPCC for helping put the letter together and bravo ECPAT International for putting their weight behind gathering support from children’s groups across the globe. The letter can be viewed here.
