Any idea if this includes Instagram as well since it is
a Facebook asset?

No idea. I am seeing this want of govt's everywhere.
Australia, China, US, BD, etc, etc. It makes me want
to get hosed off with disinfectant.

And the Australian PM boasted about using apps which encrypted
traffic to avoid surveillance before he became PM. Perhaps he
should be locked up as a terrorist.
