U.S. senators grilled Apple and Facebook executives over their encryption practices on Tuesday and threatened to regulate the technology unless the companies make encrypted user data accessible to law enforcement.

I don't think they should necessarily have access to these things with warrants, either.

If you want to encrypt things, you can. It's a personal choice. These companies are just making it "too easy" for people in the minds of elected officials.
