More secret documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden reveal the NSA collects about 200 million text messages daily, drawing information about location, contacts, financial accounts and travel from the intercepted messages.
The Guardian reports the signals intelligence agency collects the short message service texts in bulk, and that the information was made available to the NSA’s British counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), allowing it to search the untargeted metadata of UK citizens.
Dishfire, the program’s codename, dates back to at least 2011 according to a document obtained by the Guardian titled “SMS Text Messages: A Goldmine to Exploit.” Another program called “Prefer” automatically analyzes the data, meaning it isn’t just collected and stored, as the agency has claimed in the past — it’s actively searched after being apprehended from non-agency targets.
