People have already said this is OT for this thread, perhaps you can talk
on the other one.

Once turned on, if the system works, Johnny's provider shouldn't be able to
disable the encryption without the extension notifying Johnny.

The tools that encrypt transparently (iMessage, WhatsApp) aren't quite
there yet, but they potentially could be.
