In a press conference today, the Japanese government announced it was investigating the parent company behind the Line instant messaging app after a local newspaper reported that engineers at one of the app's Chinese contractors accessed the messages and personal details of Line users.

Maybe not so relevant for users outside of (south-)east Asia, but still of concern given the wide spread use of LINE over there.

could be worse, could be an american company.
