Nowadays most of our communication is conducted online using messaging apps and services on our smartphones and computers. However, ensuring our messages remain private and secure has become increasingly difficult which is why business users and consumers alike are now turning to encrypted messaging apps.
At the same time though, the intelligence-sharing alliance Five Eyes and other national governments continue to call on tech companies to create backdoors which would give them access to user’s end-to-end encrypted communications. This would defeat the purpose of using encrypted messaging apps and services in the first place and put the security and privacy of users worldwide at risk.
To learn more about the benefits of encrypted messaging and how these tools can benefit remote workers, TechRadar Pro spoke with the co-founder and CTO of Wickr Chris Howell.
