Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

Don't you get it, once you turn on your computer and open a connection to the internet (browser,email,service,etc.), you are being tracked.


That's what encryption is for. I'm pretty sure even IF, and it's a huge if, NSA could break AES they couldn't do it in real time or in a reasonable time for it to be useful.
