BlackBerry has announced that they have finally come to an agreement with the Indian Government with regards to BlackBerry Messages, and the government will now have the ability to intercept messages.
“BlackBerry has delivered a solution that enables India’s wireless carriers to address their lawful access requirements for our consumer messaging services, which include BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) email. The lawful access capability now available to BlackBerry’s carrier partners meets the standard required by the Government of India for all consumer messaging services offered in the Indian marketplace. We also wish to underscore, once again, that this enablement of lawful access does not extend to BlackBerry Enterprise Server”.
This will allow the Indian government to track emails, BBM, and web browsing on BlackBerrys platform.
