Google's next messaging Allo cut by Edward Snowden, because of their lack of encryption.

In a tweet from NSA whistle-blower, he advises against using it.

"Google's decision to remove the end-to-end encryption of defaults in his new chat app Allo is dangerous and makes it unsafe.

Allos function "smart reply" for example, scan your messages and propose responses while also connected to other Google services such as search and maps.

Although the messages which are encrypted in both modes allow the normal position is always that Google's artificial intelligence reads and analyzes the messages.

Normal is however the default location for the app, which is what got Edward Snowden to react.
