One of Tor’s core software developers has left the United States because she doesn’t want to expose users to potential spying.
CNN reports that the FBI wants Isis Agora Lovecruft to testify in a criminal hacking investigation.
But fearing she’ll be coerced to undermine Tor, which allows Internet users to hide their locations, she left the U.S. for Germany.
“I was worried they’d ask me to do something that hurts innocent people — and prevent me from telling people it’s happening,” she said in an exclusive interview with CNNMoney.
The FBI declined to comment.
