I do appreciate the stated end goal but the only effect I see this having is the US being even less desirable now for worldwide tech companies and more data breaches of sensitive info. Criminals don’t care whether encryption is banned, you can’t delete maths from the world. 😕

Criminals use custom end2end encrypted decentralized chat tools.

Mattias Geniar started a good discussion how this will influence open-source software. 🤔
Will maintainers be enforced to implement backdoors in OSS? Or is there no OSS important enough to care for them? Or will OSS bei the way to get out of it by putting the encryption layer into OSS to increase public trust and get out of backdoors? 🤔


I hope that the last one will be the future! 🎉🚀🤩
