Google's Messaging Service "Chat" Raises Security Concern



Amid worldwide acrimony over the Facebook scam, controversy surrounds Google after the largest internet search engine on the planet launched Chat which a section of experts has called an utter contempt for users’ privacy.

The first one expert to have raised the concern is none but Joe Westby who termed the new messaging service nothing but a huge gift to the gang of cyber criminals and spies to enable them to strike at ease.

Westby, who is known for his extensive studies at the Amnesty International technology and human research further said the product in question would provide the cybercriminals with unstoppable access to the content of the Andriod users’ communications on every passing moment.

Quoting a recent revelation by another American expert on end-to-end encryption being a reliable mechanism to safeguard the users’ privacy, Westby charges Google with disregarding its millions of customers and their human rights.

He said Google has never taken into consideration of the consequences of the Facebook faux pas and resorted to the hasty decision to launch the product which simply sounds dangerous.

End-to-end encryption is the reliable and minimum mechanism to safeguard the privacy of the users and that’s what the specified area as the global rights body regards and its absence would be a risky operation, observed the cyber expert.  The Google product hit the market sans the end-to-end encryption as has been confirmed by the top internet search engine who is learned to have invested in a few other messaging soon-to-be-launched products or services.

Same it took place in the case of the  Android Auto when the app from Android smartphones on a car displayed on the screen too many information much to major security concern.  Even the vehicle speed, oil temperature, and engine revs were on displayed sensing an impending danger. Then the mechanism reached Google forcing Toyota to shy away from deploying the Android Auto in their cars. The reason is the privacy concern.
