The U.S. and U.K. reached an agreement to share electronic data to help law enforcement agencies with criminal investigations, the U.S. Department of Justice announced. The two governments agreed to lift restrictions for several types of investigations, not to target residents of the other country, and to ensure that disclosures through the U.S.-U.K. Bilateral Data Access Agreement are compatible with data protection laws. The agreement is the first to be reached under the U.S. Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act. Meanwhile, the U.S., U.K. and Australian governments plan to ask Facebook to create backdoors into its encrypted messaging apps.
