Edward notes as reference an The Verge, where talk directly about the subtle changes, privacy, implemented discount Google Allo.
At first promised a messaging platform fully encrypted, and now, for some reason, all that has changed, leaving the incognito mode as a complementary function, activated on request of the user. Which may represent a safety problem, enough to not recommend their use.
Snowden posture may sound exaggerated, but if we take into account the approach of the new tape of Jason Bourne, whose saga has distinguished itself as prophetic issues of surveillance and intrusion to citizens, already sounds so outlandish.
