WhatsApp and iMessage leaked the most information to the FBI

Smartphone users usually use various social media platforms and separate messengers. The leaked document confirms that some applications transmit a lot of data to the American intelligence services.

According to Rolling Stone, the FBI can legally obtain information from any messaging application. At the same time, Facebook’s WhatsApp and Apple’s iMessage provide the FBI with the most information.

The document states that WhatsApp, iMessage and Line provided message content at a legal request from the FBI, while other messengers such as Signal, Telegram, Threema, Viber, WeChat and Wickr did not disclose the message content.

The FBI can obtain address book data from both the target and its contacts if it has a warrant. It can also track correspondence in real time. As for iMessage – if users back up their messages to iCloud, the FBI has access to the actual content of the message, as the Cupertino giant must pass the iCloud encryption key when submitting the warrant.
