Web creator Sir Tim Berners-Lee has warned that the democratic nature of the net is threatened by a "growing tide of surveillance and censorship".
The warning came as he launched his World Wide Web Foundation's annual web index report, tracking global censorship.
It suggests that 94% of the countries in the index do not adequately monitor government internet interception.
He described attempts by the spy agencies to crack encryption as "appalling and foolish".
He has previously said that the checks and balances to oversee GCHQ and its US counterpart, the National Security Agency (NSA), have failed.
