David Cameron wants to ban Snapchat

Vocabulary: to ban (v), network (n), to investigate (v), encrypted (adj), to access (v), to catch (a criminal) (v). David Cameron, the Prime Minister of the UK, has said that he may ban Snapchat, Whatsapp and iMessage if he thinks that they are used by terrorists to communicate. These communication networks encrypt the messages that you send so that other people cannot read them. David Cameron believes this could be a problem for the Police and MI5 who are investigating criminals and terrorists. Currently, British security services do not have access to encrypted messages. Especially after the Paris attacks, Cameron sees this as a big problem. He has suggested banning these message servers unless the government and secret services can access them. He thinks that if the government reads peoples’ Snapchats, they might catch more criminals and terrorists. Read more about this...
