But the truly global undercover operation had another secret: the phones also collected users' precise GPS location and transferred that information to authorities, according to multiple documents reviewed by Motherboard. I've long felt that the "encrypted phone" market is just snake oil. The marketing is great and there's lots of promises but they are usually low on detail and transparency about how their systems work. If you can't even look at the source code of a supposedly secure messaging app, how can you really trust that it's protecting you from government surveillance?
