Encrypted communications are making it difficult for federal investigators to detect terrorism, FBI Director James Comey told a Senate committee on Wednesday, Business Insider reports. 

Comey called encryption a “big problem” that is thwarting investigators and pointed to the Garland, Texas shooting as an example.

“In May, when two terrorists attempted to kill a whole bunch of people in Garland, Texas, and were stopped by great local law enforcement … that morning before one of those terrorists went to attempt mass murder, he exchanged 109 messages with an overseas terrorist,” Comey said.
