Edward Snowden Wants Hackers to Design Anti Surveillance Equipment

/ 6 years ago


Edward Snowden, former NSA contractor now world known for whistleblowing about NSA snooping, has pleaded to hackers to start developing programs that can block out government access so they can’t spy or snoop without detection. In a video chat link Edward spoke about snooping and how it needs to be stopped or fought against with the help of hackers and people wanting to help others protect their identities online.

“You in this room, right now have both the means and the capability to improve the future by encoding our rights into programs and protocols by which we rely every day,” Snowden recently told the Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) attendees.
“That is what a lot of my future work is going to be involved in.”

A new service was also discussed at the event, SecureDrop. This will be a service that allows whistleblowers to leak information to the press to expose whatever secret spying illegal stuff is happening behind our backs. I’m all for this new service, what are your thoughts? Do we really want to know what else is happening out there?
