Ah really? yes well that is in fact quite lenient ... I agree with you on all counts, also about the media coverage. Never good to jump to conclusions too fast, and vilify a company or an individual before knowing all the facts.

Thanks a lot for this. I'm gonna read it entirely, because just the first page got me even more interested - the idea of matching known hashes on-device is incredible and now that I learnt a bit more about it I'm not as concerned about privacy as I was yesterday.

Yes I agree that this seems a clean approach - if they'd do shady things like unleashing AI algorithms on images to start guessing "what it is" and then framing people based on that, well that would definitely be a big no-no. This thing with the hashes though seems about the cleanest approach you could come up with.
