    The funny thing is that most of those pedophiles who share CP or any of that child sexual shit on the internet don’t use your casual normie’s go-to messaging apps like WhatsApp or Telegram. If they find out that the EU can now request decryption keys to decrypt their stuff, then they’ll switch to something which can’t be circumvented by law and probably start encrypting the messages manually instead. The smarter ones probably already started out like that without trusting any provider in the first place. The only ones that’ll get caught in this chat control bullshit are the retarded ones. Didn’t think a region that was all pro-privacy with their GDPR and their DMA and stuff would actually agree to this.

      Pedos are just an excuse, it’s about everyone else.

      I think pepole on lemmy vastly overestimate how incredibly non technical the vast majority of population is. Including potential criminals. Still a stupid law tho.

      There’s thee things wrong with "please think of the children: 1. They’re not really asking 2. They don’t want you to think 3. It has nothing to do with the children.

      The contradictory goals for privacy displayed here are caused by corporations and intelligence agencies lobbying behind closed doors to get that data. And with the think of the children / anti pedophilia rhetoric people blindly agree. Because who wants to be against something that helps to protect kids right?
