The government has once again started asking for backdoor in encrypted services, arguing that it can not give enough security to its citizens because the terrorists are using encrypted apps to communicate and plot an attack.

Following last week’s terrorist attack in London, the UK government is accusing technology firms to give terrorists “a place to hide,” saying Intelligence agencies must have access to encrypted messaging applications such as WhatsApp to prevent such attacks.

According to authorities, the killer, Khalid Masood, 52, was active on WhatsApp messaging app just two minutes before he attacked Britain’s Houses of Parliament in Westminster that killed four people.

Here’s what Amber Rudd, Britain’s Home Secretary said while speaking at BBC’s Andrew Marr Show on Sunday:

“We need to make sure that organizations like WhatsApp, and there are plenty of others like that, don’t provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other.”

“It used to be that people would steam-open envelopes or just listen in on phones when they wanted to find out what people were doing, legally, through warranty. But on this situation we need to make sure that our intelligence services have the ability to get into situations like encrypted WhatsApp.”

However, such encryption backdoor demand has once again fueled an ongoing debate over whether tech companies, like Facebook and Apple, should create backdoors into their encryption services for government.
