There is a thread about this from 2016: Does Safenetwork fail against massive NSA snooping?
I thought that thread was too old to continue so I started this thread. NSA whistleblower William Binney said that around 80% of the world’s data communication goes via the U.S. And Binney also said that the NSA datacenters are way too big for just collecting meta data. A very good point! He said that all the meta data can be stored in like a single room, and what really is going on is that the NSA collects EVERYTHING.
So not only does the NSA collect meta data, emails and text messages. They collect all audio and video too! Both from mobile devices and from desktop browsers etc.
This means that they will collect most of the data chunks on the SAFE network. And my theory is that the NSA already easily can break standard encryption techniques, such as those used in the SAFE network.
If we assume that the NSA can piece together the data chunks correctly, they will be able to snoop on most of the SAFE network. And with cooperation with other intel agencies around the world, such as GCHQ and even Asian agencies and others, they will definitely be able to snoop on the entire SAFE network basically.
Is such scenario bad? No! I don’t think so. Because if intelligence agencies were totally blocked from access it means a huge danger of organized crime, terrorism and other really nasty “businesses” being able to operate unhindered in the dark on massive scales. Really scary.
