Please sign this whitehouse.gov petition.
This isn’t about privacy. This is about best practice security and the ability to continue using modern computers.
Without strong encryption and protections from government sponsored “back doors", you won’t be able to safely shop online, go to the doctor, pick up medications, file your taxes, etc ...
The notion that we can securely give the government special access to data is one of the most dangerous and ignorant ideas i’ve heard. Not because we can’t trust the government (can we?), but it means that there is a known back door for "bad guys” to find.
And find it they will.
It absolutely cannot be allowed. This petition should be signed by everyone that wants to continue using computers, smart phones, the internet, etc ...
