Late last week, Reuters reported that Facebook is being asked to “break the encryption” in its Messenger application.

We think it’s unlikely they are being ordered to break encryption in Messenger—and that the reality is more complicated.…
At issue here is a demand by the government that Facebook help it intercept Messenger voice calls.

Messenger calls aren't really what we refer to as “end-to-end encrypted,” and Facebook may have the means to comply with the government's request.…
We don’t think this case should result in a landmark legal precedent on encryption.

But we cannot allow the government to weaponize any ruling in this case in its larger push to undermine strong encryption and digital security.
