Encryption has become mainstream. Formerly, encryption was an arcane technology that only geeks with private keys (whatever they are) could manage.
Thank you to Apple and (I never thought I’d say) Google for bringing the world encryption by default, the next wave of built-in privacy protections. These companies and others, including WhatsApp, have developed products and platforms that have strong encryption built in by default.When you use a phone or similar device, your data is automatically made secret and inaccessible to the outside world.
