Since late last year the Brazilian Justice Whatsapp blocked across the country to lift this blockade 11 hours later . Just a couple of months messaging application was blocked for 72 hours. It seemed that this would be the end of the story, but as we see this has only just begun.
Whatsapp again is locked again in Brazil
Apparently, Whatsapp has again been blocked in Brazil for a third time. The cause? As in the two previous occasions, a court order. At the moment the causes and remain idle time are unknown, so we have to wait to find out more detail.
What if we know is that the courts have requested information from Facebook about providing information about certain users. The parent company has refused to provide the information requested because neither the company itself can access it thanks to data encryption included in Whatsapp.
Of course, it is really shocking that a court order be able to leave an entire country without media increasingly seeking to open an investigation. Can you imagine if every trial in our country they would let us without messaging applications for several days? It is what is currently happening in Brazil with Whatsapp. What if comenzasen to block all messaging applications?
