Report: Access Denied - How end-to-end encryption threatens children's safety online

It again highlights the need for tech firms to be able to identify children’s accounts and apply appropriate privacy and security rules which strikes the balance between keeping children’s data safe whilst allowing law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute crimes such as online child sexual abuse.
