In my opinion questions that ask how to hack or bypass encryption should be closed as off-topic.
Here are some examples of some recent questions:
These questions seem to always come from new users, so the narratives that accompany the questions inspire doubt and lack credibility. I simply don't believe that these questions came from people who are trying to hack into their own devices due to a forgotten password.
In my opinion, Ask Ubuntu is not the appropriate place to host questions about hacking, especially questions like these that really have nothing to do with Ubuntu and are purely concerned with bypassing encryption.
We really shouldn't have to judge the intent of questions' authors, but intent would not change the answer: Even if the original author was honest when asking how to ethically hack their own device, any answers would become a roadmap for future visitors to break encryption, including bad actors.
I just don't think that our "library of questions" should include questions and answers that give instructions on how to break encryption. I think they should be closed as off-topic. What do you guys think?
