    In what I'm sure will come as a surprise to no one, John Chen has now spoken out against UK Prime Minister David Cameron's comments supporting the banning of encrypted messaging apps which could include BBM, WhatsApp, and Snapchat, among others. Heading to LinkedIn to share his thoughts, the BlackBerry CEO laid out details that highlight how privacy and national security can be balanced. Hint: It's not by banning encrypted communications services because, in the grand scheme of it all, that would just make things easier for hackers.

    When PM personal chat spreaded in internet, he will notice that encrypted messaging is a must. We absolutely don't know how a hacker hijack our phone. Does he realize that?
