The bill gives the Department of Justice the ability to force companies and service providers to decrypt data upon request and bans so-called “warrant-proof” encryption.The Lawful Access to Encrypted Data Act (pdfhtml) applies to providers across the board. According to a blog post from the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School, the bill applies to providers of operating systems, messaging applications, email providers, manufacturers of computers, video game consoles, smartphones, or “basically any electronic device with just 1 GB of storage capacity.”
Brave, the Chromium-based browser that sells itself on privacy and adblocking features, launched a version of its website for Tor users.
In a recent blog post, a Devops Engineer at Brave announced the creation of a Brave.com onion service (brave5t5rjjg3s6k.onion). Brave is fairly straightforward about the purpose of the onion service. Unlike many high-profile companies with onion services, Brave’s recent creation appears to exist for more than just optics.

Signal, the encrypted messaging application used by millions, appears to be the latest target of the censorship wing of the Chinese government.
Signal is popular in many circles as one of the last few mainstream platforms for uncensored, end-to-end encrypted, and private conversations. Among its 40 million users are drug dealers and their customers, any privacy-conscious individual, Americans expressing “wrong” opinions, and apparently hundreds of thousands of people living in China for perhaps some of the same reasons.
Police in the UK raided properties associated with a group accused of selling MDMA on the darkweb. EncroChat was involved.

The United States Secret Service is purchasing blockchain analytics software from Coinbase, a well-known digital currency exchange.
According to publicly available spending records from the United States government, the United States Secret Service awarded a four-year contract to Coinbase earlier this year for access to Coinbase Analytics, the company’s in-house blockchain analytics software.
Signal has partnered with a cryptocurrency that believes the government has a role in regulating private transactions between citizens.
In a blog post published on April 6, Signal announced that its users will soon be able to send and receive payments “as easily as sending or receiving a message.” Right now, this feature–called Signal Payments–is limited to users of the Signal beta in the United Kingdom.
