right always, 29 Jun 2019when u done no wrong what is the reason to hide itThat is not true. You try to be secure against bad intentions, unknown people, hackers, etc. This is like hey you can't protect your self but because we have see all.... perhaps... one day.......... We will catch and imprison the person who stole your data and your money. Unless he is clever, he encrypts his data and you screw up and you do not recover anything. Then we will give you the condolences because in the NSA, CIA, police, etc, we do not accept charges of ineptitude, we are always right, we are the LAW!

Like when they imprison someone 32 years unjustly and then. OHHH sorry, here you have a miserable compensation payment/salary... but you have already lost the best part of your life.

Long live the all-knowing god-emperor Trump!

This is ridiculous... something must be done about this

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised at all even if Trump administration came up with an idea of having a nation-wide firewall so that they could monitor all the internet traffic inside US and "prevent cyber crimes and terrorism". Now it's becoming more and more questionable if they can call themselves a democratic country.

That is why they've banned Huawei because they can't breach into Huawei and put spyware to track and gather data. So sad US is crying right now especially Trump and his trumpets
