David Cameron Wants to Ban Some Online Messaging Apps

British Prime Minister David Cameron proposed that he would pursue banning encrypted messaging services if Britain’s intelligence services were not given access to the communications recently.
Popular chat and social apps that encrypt data may be blocked, such as WhatsApp and Snapchat. Internet companies like Google and Facebook are required by European politicians to provide greater information about people’s online activities after several recent terrorist threats, including the attacks in Paris. Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime also encrypt their data, and could fall under the ban along with other encrypted chat apps like Telegram. Any restriction on these online services, however, would not take effect until 2016, at the earliest.

It seems useless to avoid cyber criminals to steal your data although taking such measures. Even if he does go ahead with this proposal, there are many ways to circumvent these restrictions. Users can use VPN service or Proxies to get around these restrictions.
VPN service is always popular when it talks to the online security and privacy. The anonymous VPN connection allows users to use the Internet anonymously and prevent online data. Millions of people have subscribed the VPN connection to make their IP-addresses invisible. What’s more, there are lots of free VPN, like FlyVPN. It provides hundreds of static or dynamic IPs.
