In the latest effort to fight the FBI is the court of public opinion, Google has decided to just let you know when you are being targeted by a government entity.
The way this will work is that a warning will pop up before the user visits a site from a link provided in GMail. The warning will be just like the “safe browsing” warning that shows up in Google Chrome when a link leads the user to a suspicious or known malicious site.
Google is doing this in light of FBI’s pursuit of Apple’s encryption keys.
