Why people really use WhatsApp, according to the government

Why people really use WhatsApp, according to the government | Ethical Issues In Technology | Scoop.it
"Real people" aren't really interested in security features that stop the government and criminals reading their messages, according to Home Secretary Amber Rudd. The Government should be allowed to look at people's messages and break through the security that keeps them hidden, she has written. Most people won't be concerned about that because they primarily use apps like WhatsApp and iMessage for their "features", she writes, and not because of the technology they incorporate to keep messages safe.

Even briefly looking at something related to Facebook, like its logo or the news feed, can be enough to give people great pleasure. A desire to repeat that pleasure keeps people logging on they found, and triggers cravings when people aren't logged on.
