Cryptographic-like communication devices could break government surveillance: Telegram founder Durov |

Pavel Durov, founder of encrypted instant messaging app Telegram Messenger, predicts that increased government surveillance will force the birth of secure communication devices inspired by cryptocurrency hardware wallets.

In an April 17 Tucker Carlson interview, Durov recalled past experiences as he expressed how government entities continue to suppress the private sharing of information:

“The world is becoming less supportive. Governments are becoming less tolerant of privacy. And this is clearly the trend because they have more technological power.”

However, Durov believes that increased oversight will force innovations around hardware devices dedicated to secure communications “in the same way that we have hardware wallets to store your cryptocurrency.”
