The Swiss army has made the decision to prohibit its personnel from using messaging applications such as WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, and any other foreign nature, for official communications, favoring instead the use of Threema, a messaging service of Swiss origin and that also has its servers in that territory.
According Associated Press, the main officials of the Swiss army sent a personal letter to the main commanders last December, urging them to use the Threema messaging service, without the possibility of opting for any other messaging service at first, although this requirement was softened more recently, turning the use of Threema into a recommendation.
In the letter, they cited the increased need for secure communications, showing as the main concern the United States legislation, which would allow the authorities of that country to have the power to access the data stored by companies that are under jurisdiction in the United States.
In this regard, the CLOUD Act requires Internet service providers that are under US jurisdiction to comply with the registration orders, regardless of where the servers are located.
Threema is a company of Swiss origin and with servers only in Switzerland, a situation that avoids having to go through US legislation, and also complying with European legislation on the protection of privacy, the well-known legislation GDPR.
The issue is that, as they comment in The Verge, despite the fact that the records stored in European territory are covered by the GDPR, and therefore, in principle, they should not be within the judicial sphere of the United States, in 2020, a federal judge in New York indicated in an opinion that compliance foreign privacy laws they do not cancel the obligation to present documents in the discovery, in reference to a case where the search of the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States in the Telegram app for not properly registering the sale of their cryptocurrency tokens.
WhatsApp will stop working on iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. From autumn, the messenger will not be supported on iOS 10 and iOS 11
According to the WABetaInfo resource, which tracks all the innovations in the messenger, the application developers will stop supporting devices running iOS 10 and iOS 11 this year. This will happen on October 24th.
Thus, in the fall, WhatsApp will stop working on smartphones such as the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. This data is confirmed by the WhatsApp Help Center, which indicates that the application requires iOS 12 (and higher) and Android 4.1 (and higher) to work.
Apple is expected to unveil iOS 16 at WWDC 2022 in June. It will introduce many new features, but at the same time, the new OS will not be supported by a number of the company’s popular phones – iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and first generation iPhone SE.
Even Windows 11 has already been updated to Android 12.1. Microsoft has updated the subsystem Windows Subsystem for Android
Microsoft continues to develop the idea of combining Windows and Android. Recently, the company announced the release of an update to the Windows Subsystem for Android subsystem for its current OS.
One of the main innovations is the transition to Android 12.1 (12L). The current public version is based on Android 11. Initially, the update is only available through the Dev Channel. When it will become available to everyone is still unclear.
Microsoft notes that updating to Android 12.1 may result in some apps not running. She does not specify which ones, but it probably refers to some old programs.
The update also strengthens the integration of Android into Windows. For example, pop-up messages are first displayed as Windows notifications. The taskbar now shows if an Android app is accessing your microphone or location.
The company also states that Android apps should work better after waking the computer from standby. Instead of restarting, they should just resume where they left off.
