Nokia Decrypts HTTPS Data

David Meyer of GigaOm:

Nokia has confirmed reports that its Xpress Browser decrypts data that flows through HTTPS connections — that includes the connections set up for banking sessions, encrypted email and more. However, it insists that there’s no need for users to panic because it would never access customers’ encrypted data.

I was so worried that you were gathering the most private information from your customers, but I’m relieved to know that you’re not actually reading it, Nokia. Way to clear that up. That could’ve been a PR disaster.
