Secretive White House Surveillance Program Gives Cops Access to Trillions of US Phone Records

…a surveillance program now known as Data Analytical Services (DAS) has for more than a decade allowed federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to mine the details of Americans’ calls, analyzing the phone records of countless people who are not suspected of any crime, including victims. Using a technique known as chain analysis, the program targets not only those in direct phone contact with a criminal suspect but anyone with whom those individuals have been in contact as well.

You’d be a fool to use anything other than FaceTime Audio, Signal, or another encrypted communication service.

No more phone calls.
