Gov moving fast with plans to ban WhatsApp, Snapchat, iMessage & Facetime.

Police Hour broke the news back in January that David Cameron wants to ban iMessage, WhatsApp and Snapchat.

Just a quick update new draft laws are now being created to ensure the ban goes ahead. 
These services all use encrypted messages meaning they are a potential secuirty threat and cannot be mointored by the secuirty services. 

Theresa May Snooper’s Charter will see an end to the services in the United Kingdom under the Draft Data Communications Data Bill. 

The Liberal Democrats blocked the bill last time round, but now the conservatives are going it alone it could soon be law.

With the conservatives having a majority government there will be no stopping the new law, it is expected that these services will be banned in 2016.
