>Unfortunately, expecting a non-tech-savvy person to understand how data moves around the Internet

Explain how data can be unreadable while it moves. Teach them to use secure communication options. You don't need to be an electric engineer to use a TV remote control.

But no one has made a TV Remote control version of "encrypted Facebook" or even "encrypted eMail".

And heck, there are people who can't use tv remote controls.

The only thing that I'd consider "easy" is encrypted chat (signal). The "issue" there is market fragmentation (arguably a good thing).

What secure communications options specifically?
