The EU's home affairs chief wants to read your private messages - Privacy Community

A new law is threatening the privacy of the European Union’s 447 million inhabitants.

The CSA Regulation, proposed by European Commissioner Ylva Johansson, could undermine the trust we have in secure and confidential processes like sending work emails, communicating with our doctors, and even governments protecting intelligence.

The regulation wants to routinely scan our private communications online using AI tools to look for the spread of child sexual abuse material.

It does not matter if you are suspected of a crime or not, this scanning could include everyone — hundreds of millions of law-abiding European residents.
