Yet another stupid piece of legislation devised by civil servants who simply do not understand the implications of what they are doing and scrutinised by people who equally have no idea what they are doing, so it will end up as law in the UK.

Well following on from the UK Snoopers charter law anyone hoping the EU would throw out the whole lot as against someone's human right is in for a rude shock.

In fact the EU is proposing that ALL apps using encryption etc WILL have a backdoor into them for governments.
...and companies can either provide said back doors "voluntarily" or they can by law be forced to do so.

Only just got around to reading this now and I notice there has been an amendment to that article - link

Quote from: theregister
The original version of this article stated that the EC was looking to pass legislation providing it with backdoor access to encryption.

A spokesperson from the EC got in touch to say that Jourová's words had been misinterpreted and there is no plan to introduce legislation covering encryption. The proposed laws will instead cover faster access to material held in the cloud in different jurisdictions. Material that, presumably, they expect to be unencrypted.

That clarification came on the same day that UK home secretary Amber Rudd also appeared to back away from her demand that law enforcement be given access to encrypted communications on apps such as WhatsApp.
Please do not PM me with queries for broadband help as I may not be able to respond.
