Snowden's rants re Google's Allo

Putin's boy Snowden is of course trying to drum up new publicity by
blasting Google's new Allo chat app. Personally, I'm satisfied with
the privacy options in the system. However, to tamp down the rants, it
probably would be useful for Google to add options for users to set
"all new chats in incognito mode" and "all new incognito chats have a
timeout duration of [NN]" -- rather than only having the "only applies
to this single chat" settings. Then the more paranoid users could be
satisfied and the rest of us could take advantage of Allo's expanding
AI capabilities as it evolves.

I have consulted to Google, but I am not currently 
doing so -- my opinions expressed here are mine alone.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't 
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
