This is official news. Not everyone will be affected, and if the ISPs we use like BSNL, Airtel, etc. are not up-to-date, then those users get affected.
The official version states they are changing encryption keys. The unsaid part is that the few real powers-behind-the-scenes are tightening their grip on the net, to manipulate the masses to follow their way of thinking and not think differently; and to control opponents and the alternate media.
Here is a short list of some recent happenings and info:
1. Facebook owns Whatsapp and Instagram. Facebook wants the US banks to give them the bank customer info. Instagram wants to share your location with Facebook.
2. Around 500 alternate media Facebook (those who don't swallow the main stream media garbage) accounts/pages are closed or deleted. Youtube, twitter also doing same.
3. Russia is ready to operate on a totally separate internet, one that is not infused with the western global agenda promoters.
4. Alternate media folks are aware that the CIA is directly involved with all the social networks including those from Microsoft and Google for the purposes of snooping on everyone. Remember Julian Assange and Snowden?
5. All our bank and investments info is getting fed to some US agencies automatically.
6. You cannot uninstall the Facebook app from your android mobiles. You can disable and hope it is disabled.
7. New mobiles come with non-removable batteries so that the phone is always traceable (for both good and evil purposes).
8. A whole bunch of apps that you installed have access to your contacts, messages, media folders, camera, microphone of your phone or computer, even when they have no reason for it.
You can add more yourself if you read up news from alternate media.
Welcome to the new and controlled internet of the New World Order!
