I would love to express my thoughts on this, if only because as a German here I once again feel screwed and pissed off, only then I get another friendly request that no political topics should be discussed here. Sorry so for my abstention, dear friends
Just this: it was only a matter of time before Durov gave in to our government’s insistence …
Telegram were never to be trusted to begin with
Nor are any VPN’s, because they always have to seize their “best intentions” to their national government’s hands.
Any server in germany with its ip and autgority has some information with a warrant company have to cooperate. Its not they are freely to spy too.even if you start a vpn service in germany. You have to act on the law otherwise it wil that service down. It works everywhere i gues? Social media generally are in tension in such rules too.
