Daring to ensure privacy in China with LeakZero’s encryption
China maintains that its citizens aren’t as concerned about data privacy than those in the West; Yang Geng disagrees
Beijing — In a country where privacy protections are considered weak and anything-goes data collection has become the norm, Chinese tech entrepreneur Yang Geng stands out.
His service LeakZero helps people surf the web anonymously, protect passwords and send encrypted messages. By design, he can’t find out the names of the app’s users or even know how many there are. It doesn’t have a so-called back door.
