Snowden warns new Google app will aid 'Big Brother'

U.S. National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden has criticized Google's new messaging application, saying it is a breach of privacy and will track everything that users will say.

The technology giant launched its new so called “smart chat” application, Allo, on Wednesday, promising more intelligent text conversation features, including auto-reply options.

Snowden, also a former CIA employee before who is now living in exile in Russia, said via Twitter that Google’s application will “record every message you ever send and make it available to police upon request,” adding that Allo was “dangerous” and nicknaming the application “Google Surveillance.”

Snowden stressed that 100 percent of close to 1,500 surveillance requests were granted by the U.S. foreign intelligence court and that user data stored in Allo could easily be obtained too.
