This Is ISIS’ New Favorite App for Secret Messages

The terror group is pushing a new way to communicate quietly after the Paris attacks. It’s called Telegram.

In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, ISIS is encouraging its followers to use a popular chat application that can make text messages effectively invisible to government spies.

    Thanks Ed Snowden!
    You really did Westren Civ a huge favor.

    I’m surprised there isn’t a back door, there usually is for security agencies.

      There may be telegram is closed/propriety, but financed by wealthy Russian.

      • Ron MacDonald

        Then FSB probably has a back door.

    Why do they still have cell towers? Why are their iPhones not laced with plague?

      Why is isis territory still even connected to the telecomm network.

      • Maneki-neko

        Probably because it makes spying on them easier.

    According to news reports, they use Play Station 4s for secure communication.

  • FactsWillOut

    So, folk are actually swallowing the BS that we all need to have our communications surveilled in order to be secure. In fucking real.

      I think we should get out of spying on citizens just in case and go back to needing a warrant. Then destroy the links between islamic hell holes and the world communication network. Let them sit on their phones unable to send email or play angry birds.

    This is bullshit and nonsense. The government IGNORES 99% of the threats they come across anyway. All they’re really concerned with is prying into ordinary citizens private affairs – the ‘soft’ targets as it were, of law enforcement.
