But Line plans to switch it on by default for all users soon, initially it is only default for those with one Android device registered to their account.There are plans to add encrypted sealing to Line for desktop and other operating systems over time, too. A number of Line’s messaging rivals have already embraced end-to-end encryption, including Whats App, Apple’s i Message, and Telegram.Adding end-to-end encryption should help the company argue that keeps data locked up, secure, and out of the hands of third parties.It’s worth adding that, while this news looks good on paper, members of the security community are yet to have a go at disproving the security.Held at our main office, these seminars explore suicide and related topics and are provided by professionals in their respective areas of expertise.We are currently not accepting applications, but if you wish to be put on the interest list for the October-November training class, please email Nathan Lichtman, our Training Coordinator, at [email protected], each training period includes a weekend workshop called ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training).

Japan-based Line is finally bringing end-to-end encryption to its mobile messaging service, which is used by over 211 million people worldwide each month.
The company said today that a new security feature, dubbed ‘Letter Sealing’, will bring encryption to messages and features on the service, starting with one-on-one chats and the service’s location-sharing feature, on its mobile and desktop apps.
Please note that volunteers do not take calls or chats from anywhere outside of the Crisis Line room.
To maintain skill level after training, all staff and volunteers are asked to attend a total of four continuing education lectures per year.
