    I can't say 100%.

    Apple and Google have definitely improved their encryption chops, while on our end its limited to Enterprise customers.
    We can't really say that the others don't have any backdoor or not.
    We can probably be happy that busting in the front door won't happen, but back door, I wouldn't be overly surprised if some behind-the-scenes legal wars happened over this.

    I don't know what type of encryption it is, or what it's for, but there is somewhere in the settings of WP8.1 that says it is encrypted....

    How can you say something so stupid? How do you know that Google and apple have no back door? Because they said so?

    Apple & Google are more than likely just saying they have no backdoors for any government. Of course they all do. They just say they don't to increase their sales. Would anyone with half a brain, buy a product if the manufacturer or software makers stated, yes, we have backdoors for the government on all our devices. I don't think so, as nobody would buy it.

    They are American, so yea they do.

    When Google creates a newer android version, people from the nsa are involved aswell. Probably they same with Windows and apple since they all fall under the American patriot act.

    Remember the vingerprint scanner on the new 5s back then? They said it would not be stored etc. But they did.. NSA has them all!

    Do not believe the lies that those big company's tell you. Ofcourse they want you to believe your data is safe! They want to keep selling.

    I think the safest you can get is a blackberry.
