Everything has a price, and everybody, that includes the users, the companies (Google, Microsoft, Facebook and so on) and governments are to blame for all this.

It's a 1 big circle

That AI check is not something only WhatsApp does, a lot of services to that including Microsoft and Google to name 2 biggest.

Nothing surprising here, storm in a glass news wise.

However it doesn't change a fact companies go too far with it, but the issue also lay in governments forcing these practices.

It's not about having to "hide" something, it's about your right to privacy being invaded.

Would you leave your house unlocked for anyone to walk in whenever they felt like it? I doubt you would. It's the same concept.

Why is everyone so alarmed about this? The report feature is inside the client (on both sides, probably), so it's not like the government can spy on you, at least not because of this particular feature. This doesn't really change the end-to-end encryption, it just tells us that the Whatsapp client (essentially the app) can read and react to messages and maybe "leak" the conversation. Even end-to-end encryption relies on the clients enforcing it.

with your first point more than the second.
Some people who like to judge and accuse people without any thought,
will attack anyone for anything, ever heard of micro-aggression?
no free will and no freedom of expression on FB well I think this is the case everywhere
have you seen channel 4 interview with Jordon Peterson? (IN THE UK)
It was all about political correctness.

Once a spy, always a spy. They'll find different excuses and tactics to reach their goals.
