#Google Introduces End-to-End Encryption for #Gmail - https://gizmodo.com/gmail-google-end-to-end-encryption-email-1849911695
@lauren It is important to describe the limitations here. E2EE here would be useful when emailing with third parties. Since #Gmail is proprietary software, users just have to trust #Google to do the right thing. Technically, it is easy to build E2EE where the service can get the private keys and decrypt as they like. Given participation in #PRISM etc, proprietary Gmail cannot provide trustworthy E2EE, especially considering most emails stay within Gmail 1/2
@guardianproject @lauren And of course #ReproducibleBuilds is a key part of this whole picture, allowing anyone to confirm that the exact binary that is running on their device matches the source code as published and audited.
