If I could create a code and write physical notes in that code, would that be a national security issue because the FBI couldn’t easily read it? They can gain access to the back-up data stored in the cloud with a search warrant, which is what they should have to use EVERY time they access a citizen’s data anyway. This is a bogus claim by the FBI. Should I leave my door unlocked at home because it would make it easier for the police to get in? It sounds to me like they are asking us to do the same thing with our mobile devices - leave them open for any criminal to exploit just in case the cops want to have a look around. If there is a case where the only evidence is on a cell phone, it is a pretty weak case anyway.
