FBI Removes Public Endorsement Of Encryption From Website

  • I got this tweet when Cory Doctorow published it, but couldn't find the missing info -- that is, the endorsement of encryption is still up, as a press release for the Los Angeles division of the FBI.  Upon seeing Techdirt's writeup (link below), I had the address of the scrubbed page in question -- and upon seeing it archived only once by the Wayback Machine, thought I would do a post...

  • BACKGROUND LINK #1: "As crypto wars begin, FBI silently removes sensible advice to encrypt your devices" BoingBoing
  • BACKGROUND LINK #2: "FBI Quietly Removes Recommendation To Encrypt Your Phone... As FBI Director Warns How Encryption Will Lead To Tears"-- Techdirt.
  • BACKGROUND LINK #3: "Everybody Knows FBI Director James Comey Is Wrong About Encryption, Even the FBI" -- Techdirt
