With the release of Googles “Allo”, I find that the issue in this article to be problematic. There is a lot of disenchantment in believing that someone is completely safe when sending messages to someone, then finding out they have a wishy-washy choice to protect themselves. Google’s idea to make their incognito function completely encrypted, and not their default page, means that our privacy as users is only conditional. This places users in a divide for those who actually are capable of causing harm to systems to be unharmed, while the majority could be taken advantage of the entire time users send and receive messages to each other.
