Secure the privacy of your phone messages

Headline image with title "The Online Safety Bill Unlocks your phone"

The Online Safety Bill requires ALL online speech to be monitored for “harmful content”, including the private conversations you have on your phone with friends and family. Companies like Whatsapp and Signal will be required by law to break end-to-end encryption, so the Government can automatically scan your messages.

They say encryption is dangerous, but the opposite is true. Encryption keeps your information and transactions safe from criminals. It ensures your private messages stay private. If the UK Government can break encryption to read your messages, that means scammers, hackers and foreign governments can too.

Graphical text that says "Undermining end-to-end encryption or introducing content scanning obligations for private messaging will remove protections for private citizen's data.
