Do you like safe data? Do you like safe networks? Do you like the fact knowing that if you lose your smartphone or have it stolen that criminals cannot access the data on it? Well, the government does not seem to like that and Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Richard Burr are working on new law that would significantly reduce the security of data for all users. While the overall motive is good (wanting to get into the phones of convicted criminals), the way in which they are going about it harms the 99% of good and decent technology users. Once backdoors are built into technology and hackers know that they are there, it is only a matter of time before they are exploited and used on a wide scale.
