CNET- Google has begun experimenting with encrypting Google Drive files, a privacy-protective move that could curb attempts by the U.S. and other governments to gain access to users' stored files.
PR stunt, nothing else :D
Then why are you smiling?
Holy shit you have a lot of BUBBLES! What is this I don't even.
Mounce, he's a mod. You've been here over a year and didn't know people with 10 bubbles are mods? very rarely do people even hit 8+ bubbles. Back before I started posting, users with 8-9 and even 10 bubbles are much more common than they are now.
Says the company that was silently operating under NSA and PRISM for the past few years?
I'm sure another secret government "law" allows them to demand encryptions, too.
YEA right, google is on their side
I like google
You can guarantee they are just sitting their watching where companies go and how to bypass the law and will just add to the law to force their hand again. "Well you need a key to this locked door, we can't give you anything." HEADLINE: Government requires keys to every door in the country!
this is like a slap in the face..... disgusting to even think that google will in somewhat lead the way to privacy my ass..... their the biggest slut in the industry giving it away for free
