I agree the column names as abbreviations of the more technical names in the criteria are not as clear to a technical reader. The goal was to make definitions that were easier for ordinary users to understood.

That is a fine goal to have, but right now EFF is telling users that Apple cannot read their messages when the truth is that they can.

I hope this is corrected ASAP on the website, otherwise the message being sent to people is that it is OK to deceive people about the security of messaging apps, and I don't think that's the message the EFF wants to send.

We don't need to do that in order to spur innovation. Doing so seems like it will have the opposite effect: that of complacency.

Kind regards,

Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.
