Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has expressed concern about Facebook’s proposal to introduce end-to-end encryption across its messaging platforms. Dutton has warned that fully encrypting Messenger and Instagram will facilitate the activities of terrorists and paedophiles. Dutton is seeking to introduce new laws aimed at cracking down on the so-called ‘dark web’; he contends that under current legislation it is almost impossible to investigate and identify people who use the dark web. Facebook-owned WhatsApp already uses end-to-end encryption.
