Does Australia's access and assistance law impact 1Password? | 1Password
Australia recently passed the so-called Assistance and Access Act. This law (correctly) has many digital security and privacy experts worried. We’d like to offer some preliminary remarks on how it may impact the privacy and security of 1Password customers and how it may affect the way we work.
Even at this early stage we can remind everyone that we do not currently, and will not introduce back doors into our products, and we will continue to operate in a way that would make it difficult for a back door to be inserted.
Our remarks on the Assistance and Access Act (discussed under the hashtag #aaBill) must be preliminary at this point. There is a great deal of vagueness in the law in its current form, and we do not know how it will be interpreted and used when it goes into effect in March. Nonetheless there are a number of things that we can clearly (re)state now.

Does Australia's access and assistance law impact 1Password?
Does Australia's access and assistance law impact 1Password?
One of the most disturbing things about the Assistance and Access Act is that it apparently authorizes the Australian government to compel someone subject to its laws to surreptitiously take actions that harm our customers’ privacy and security without revealing that to us. Would an Australian employee of 1Password be forced to lie to us and do something that we would definitely object to?
There's a lot of desperation in world governments as encryption outstrips their previously secret capabilities. They've enjoyed feeding at the trough of private data for a decade. Now it's drying up and the result will be rushed and poorly devised legislation, like Australia's. Without a course correction, my guess is that Australia will become a country that has no employment in tech firms. The questions raised by Agile Bits highlight problems that I'm sure every major tech company is considering. Can they trust their own employees now that obligations as a citizen are directly contrary to obligations as an employee? I'm looking forward to the "Not made in Australia" badge showing up on webpages.
