Google’s Android operating system is now releasing a new program with
encrypted data. In the past, Android has offered optional encryption, but most costumers
were unaware of how to use this feature. For those who are unaware of
what encryption is, it is a special code that allows messages to be decoded
by only a certain party.
Android has followed in Apple’s footsteps in trying to protect their
users privacy. Both companies are working towards protecting customers
from illegal search and seizures from the government. By allowing an automatic
encryption application, Apple and Android are moving one step closer from
allowing customers information from being intercepted by the government.
Android will begin automatically downloading this feature onto new Androids
after October. Apple will have the software available for both older and
newer Apple devices through the IOS 8 update.
Although the encryption update keeps government from intercepting information
on ne cell phones, it does not stop the government (with search warrants)
from accessing information that people have on their ICloud.
There are many advocates for this new update. What are your thoughts?
