The UK's Government has passed the "Snoopers Charter"

Both the House of Commons and the House of Lords has passed the Investigatory Powers Bill, a bill which is better known as the "Snooper's Charter".



Read more on the Snoopers Charter.

And does this include every country in the world or just UK and one else? (Didn't quite get it from the article)... Like for instance Sweden? Norway? Finland etc?...

I'm pretty sure every modern 1st world government/country does this off the books. China is probably the biggest one.
Good thing we have the Tech Giants trying there hardest to make spying very difficult from all governments. WhatsApp being a great example
