This week, the government of India will have new tools for cracking down on crime; namely, track and monitor text messages. The three red ticks that pop up when you receive a message mean court proceedings may be pending against you!
The Indian Government is getting more sophisticated in its tactics to combat crime by introducing a system where anyone who receives an odd-looking WhatsApp message gets tracked automatically through the use of surveillance satellites. As per reports from this past Sunday’s broadcast on NDTV 24×7 News Network (NDTN), these people can read your texts even if they don’t have access or permission because it doesn’t require any sort of authentication whatsoever–everything can simply go right into space and become public information.
The text stated, “Two blue ticks and one red tick means the government can take action against you, while three red ticks will mean that the government has started court proceedings against you.”
Facebook has clarified on the same stating that texts are encrypted between users under “end-to-end encryption” and will be controlled by senders and recipients only. Governments, third parties won’t have access to messages or content in between!
The forwarded many times labelled messages said, “If a user shares a negative message against the government or on a religious issue, then they will get arrested.”
