As governments around the world seek to find a balance between privacy and public safety online, encryption is increasingly under attack in many democracies. The Online Safety Bill in the UK is just one facet of the story. EU Chat Control, the Lawful Access to Encrypted Data Act and the EARN IT Act in the US, the Surveillance Legislation Amendment Act in Australia, the C26 Bill in Canada: these are all attempts to undermine encrypted communications to facilitate law enforcement investigations. On the occasion of the 2023 World Press Freedom Day's theme of "enabling freedom of expression to enjoy and protect all other human rights," some tech firms behind encrypted software like VPN services joined forces with privacy advocate groups to call on governments to uphold privacy rather than undermining encryption.
