Documents: NSA can access secure BlackBerry phones
The report says that the NSA has set up teams for each operating system, trying to discover as much secret information held on each platform as they can. Documents state that the agency can gain access to a computer that an iPhone user syncs with while using mini-programs to peer into 38 additional iPhone functions.
And while back in 2009 there was a time when the NSA could not read BlackBerry user's SMS messages, an acquisition made that year led to a change in the way that the Canadian company compressed data. This led to a successful attempt by British intelligence to spy on BlackBerry handsets. And while the company states that it's email system cannot be spied on, NSA documents say the opposite.

And the only solution is to vote for the completely different parties with a bright structure and clean persons never connected to the fascists in the US gov
Otherwise this fascistic USA will never change

If you start with the premise that nothing is safe from the NSA, you won't be disappointed.

It is doesn\'t matter what OS your smartphone or computer is using. Because such \"security agencies\" intercept your incoming and outgoing data in telecomunication or internet provider\\\'s level. Basicaly what security agency have to do is to decrypt (of course if it is even encrypted) your incoming and or outgoing data. The most popular and common encryption algorythms are very well known for such \\\"security agencies\\\", also such \\\"security agencies\\\" has good specialists of reverse code engineering and powerfull \\\"super\\\" computers for bruteforcing.
\\\"jolla have nothing NOTHING usa related and thus according to wikipedia should be safe from the NSA\\\"
It is doesn\\\'t matter because due one or another personal reason even company from any other country may have an unofficial agreement with one ore another \\\"security agency\\\".
\\\"i don\\\'t think they\\\'ve would\\\'ve set up a team for something dead like Symbian\\\"
People already were spied when Symbian was a popular OS.
\\\"also i reckon microsoft and apple just gives them the key to open and go inside lawl\\\"
Could be the true.
\\\"...BB10 was the supposed to be the hero...\\\"
It is a fairy-tale for fools.
\\\"get firefox os lol\\\"
Won\\\'t help as I have already mentioned in my firs paragraph of current comment. The only one method to increase security level is to encrypt all your data with an unknown (maybe private) algorythm before transfereing all your data over the internet.

Don\'t you just love all of the slashes that PA\'s site adds to each post? One step forward and two steps backward. :-(

You don't think they'd have something set up for the OS that until very recently was by far the most popular in all the world? This program didn't start yesterday...
