Google Boosts User Data Encryption Against NSA Surveillance

Google is on the rampage to encrypt loads of user data in order to protect it from the ravenous clutches of the NSA. After Edward Snowden spilled the beans there was widespread outrage among public activists regarding invasion of online privacy. One of the major laws enshrined in the American code of ethics regarding innocence until proven guilt was clearly being violated here.

Now it is a race against time to save unnecessary intrusion into the private lives of ordinary people who are suspected of being terrorists. Google meanwhile has repudiated any rumors of it being in cahoots with the NSA and PRISM. 

In fact, Google has teamed up with Microsoft to sue the NSA in what it thought was a serious breach of its security code by the snoopy agency. The NSA has responded by defending its actions in a manner of audacity and self-importance. Its top brass says that there are criminals and cyber-terrorists that use encryption and coded language on the Internet. To get access to them was of the utmost importance for national security.

Therefore the NSA was acting in the best interests of all. However, Google and several other cyber companies disagree and want an end to this excess scrutiny that is a form of terrorism itself.
