    Encryption

    Strong, unbroken encryption is essential in protecting users' privacy and the integrity of sensitive data, yet encryption technology is currently under threat in many countries.

    What is the purpose of having passwords on our phones? 

    For most of us, the answer is obvious: to protect our personal information. Our phones, like our online accounts, our email address and even our private chats, hold an increasing quantity of information, covering every aspect of our lives, that we want to keep private. 

    This information can range from your banking information to corporate trade secrets and even intimate details about your sexual orientation. People seek privacy to protect themselves from oppressive governments, thieves, abusive partners, bullies or simply because they enjoy the freedom it provides in an increasingly exposed world.

    All this information is kept secret thanks to one crucial core technology: encryption.
