The Online Safety Bill requires ALL online speech to be monitored, including your private conversations with friends and family. Companies like Whatsapp and Signal will be required by law to break encryption so they can scan and censor your messages.
They say encryption is dangerous, but the opposite is true. Encryption keeps your information and transactions safe from criminals. It ensures the private messages you share with friends and family stay private.
If the UK Government and ministers like Home Secretary Priti Patel can break encryption to read your messages, that means scammers, hackers and foreign governments can too. If they get their way, billions of personal messages will be ready to be hacked, sold and exploited.
The Government's plan to access your private messages will help criminals and make us less safe. Sign the petition to save encryption!
Dear Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Priti Patel, and Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries,
Encryption keeps us safe from hackers, scammers and foreign governments. Breaking encryption to scan all private messages will be a gift to criminals and make us less safe.
We call on you to keep us safe by preserving encryption in the Online Safety Bill!
