How the NSA Converts Spoken Words Into Searchable Text – The Intercept

Hvis du ikke er helt tilfreds med at udenlandske efterretningstjenester læser alle dine SMS’er og lytter med på alle dine telefonsamtaler (for det gør de, som det fremgår af nedenstående artikel) så er der måske hjælp at hente, i det mindste for ’smart-phone’ brugere. Der findes nu app’s til både iPhone og Android som krypterer både samtaler og tekstbeskeder, så aflytning bliver meget besværligt hvis ikke helt umuligt. Kik en tur omkring Open Whisper Systems og bliv klogere på hvordan du kan beskytte dit privatliv.
