Stuff about having phone numbers and email addresses attached to social media accounts
With the data being held by companies in ways we don't necessarily know and consistent fuck ups with data leaks, along with heading down a pretty terrifying road politically, it's beginning to look a lot less extreme as a measure than it was.
The DWP already search for profiles using this information so I've no doubt other gov departments do too, and will more commonly as time goes on.
I remember back in 1998 when the Free / Libre / Open Source Software movement took over Silicon Valley and everyone switched to Linux so that precisely this kind of nonsense couldn't happen

Good thing we didn't go the 'subscription software' route, isn't it

**US, allies seek access to Facebook encrypted messaging apps**

When you suddenly click that
1) 'Silpheed/Sylpheed' (an email client, and a space shooter videogame series) is just Japanese mangled English for 'sylphid', better known as 'sylph'...
2) ... which was a word in the popular Romantic mythology of the 1700s-1800s era for 'airy nature spirit'...
3) ... but is itself fake Latin made up by the Swiss-German Paracelsus (1493-1541) to describe his theoretical alchemical entities

At this point, understanding computers isn't even about understanding the difference between GOTO and GOSUB or knowing what TCP/IP stands for - or even *is*. It's about understanding power. If you buy a laptop off Amazon, boot into Windows, log into Facebook, and check your Gmail, you're entering into exploitative power relationships where you - like the workers who made the laptop, sold you the laptop, delivered the laptop, the workers who manually moderate your Facebook feed, like the miners who dug up the copper and cobalt - are at the bottom.
Much like a job where you exchange your time and labor for capital, you are exchanging your personal relationships for convenience.
In order to get out from under this, you *do* need to educate yourself somewhat. You gotta know how certain things work. You don't have to become a programmer or hacker though. It's not the fucking Matrix. You just have to understand things enough to manipulate them and know where you stand.
