It could soon get the first complaint to Telegram. The nation pondering such a move as Indonesia, where the government has decided to close access to a platform which is considered an ally of terrorists indirect. The reason? We know well: the use of encryption that prevents the company to preserve the translation keys of messages sent between members, so that they can adapt to the demands of spying and monitoring of security agencies. More than once the founder Pavel Durov had to answer charges of having built a client that helps criminals in general, explaining that the aim is not. He reiterated once again, responding to the first report on the block in the country’s possibilities. “We want to dedicate a team of moderators who study the situation in Indonesia, to understand how to improve the reporting process and illicit chat thread and terrorism-related. Telegram is based on the encryption but rejects a similar use of technology. ”
As mentioned, this is not the first time that the founder of the client has to counter the views of critics. But this time, in addition to words, Durov has taken the field with a concrete strategy designed to shut down extremist hotbeds born of Telegram. This is why the example of Indonesia could pave the way for similar decisions in other countries, very sensitive to the issue of the closure of Telegram to remove the terrorists a critical communication tool. Additional task forces are therefore expected in France and England, but also in Germany, countries that have experienced first-line jihadists attacks. The risk, in the absence of a decision by the company, it is of being cut off from certain markets, as happened in China and Oman.
