🇩🇪 Die EU plant mit der #Chatkontrolle die anlasslose Echtzeit-Massenüberwachung deiner gesamten privaten Online-Kommunikation. Worum geht es, wie geht es weiter und wie kannst du dich wehren?



🇬🇧 With #chatcontrol, the EU wants #masssurveillance of all your private online communications in real-time. What is it about, what will happen next and what can you do?



@echo_pbreyer so.. I used to think EU is good, guess I'll have to go to the moon now...

It never was good.
We need open source, decentralized, end-to-end encrypted messenging

@fasse @echo_pbreyer it's sad that we even have to encrypt our messages if you think about it...

This is something I miss from the offline world.

Offline, you can have your privacy and, if necessary, the police can get in and investigate your stuff to prove the wrong thing you are doing.

Being online either you have everything well encrypted or everything opened what gives space for governments to do that kind of thing.

No not quite. In the offline world in many countries you have a constitutional right to secrecy of correspondence, that says that noone exept to whom you send a letter is allowed to read it. So in fact I think it should be mandatory that all messenger services must encrypt. Same rights online as offline, of course in some instances the police can take your letters if they search your house, the same may be applied to digital messenges if you want that
@metalune @echo_pbreyer

@fasse @metalune @echo_pbreyer but each country has your own rules about that and the online world has just 2 options.

Here, the police might hear your phone calls if they need to and search inside your house for letters. So you would need to destroy them or giving them away, while in criptography, you would say "I don't have the password anymore".

Maybe new laws to enforce someone to unlock an encrypted file if the police has rights to research in your house could work.

Yes, the details may change, but by default should all be encrypted. Courts may force you to decrypt some or something, but I think encrypted messenging, and being able to for sure know that it is, is a fundamental right
@metalune @echo_pbreyer

@fasse I agree with you. We need our privacy. I have my own servers for mostly everything I use, everything encrypted.

I just also think about the Police, as they also need to do their work and how to avoid the governments excuses to keep accessing our data as much as possible.
