The search giant even admits that the correspondence of users of the new service will not be protected end-to-end encryption because of the peculiarities of the RCS Protocol that ensures message delivery.
“Having made the decision to start the messaging service without end-to-end encryption, Google has demonstrated a clear and blatant contempt for the privacy of Android users said Vestbi. Thus [Google] has made an invaluable gift to criminals and spies from the government, giving them access to the correspondence”.

Such irresponsibility, continues the human rights activist, is absolutely incompatible with the right to privacy of correspondence.

Thanks to the encryption keys stored at the sender and the recipient, an attacker can obtain access to the correspondence only if you physically take possession of one of the devices.
