Facebook Messenger calls are becoming much more secure than before. Like one chat after another, with the latest update, Facebook Messenger is getting end-to-end encryption features for voice and video calls. This will make all voice and video calls in Messenger much more secure than before.
The latest update brings end-to-end encryption to Facebook Messenger’s video and voice calls. Simply put, Messenger will contain all chat sender and message recipients, including video and voice calls. In fact, the best thing about the end-to-end encryption feature is that even Facebook can’t access the chat.
As a reminder, Facebook introduced end-to-end encryption for one chat after another in 2016. Significantly, in order to use the end-to-end encryption feature for chat in Messenger, users must first turn on the secret conversation feature.
New feature in Facebook Messenger
Commenting on bringing end-to-end encryption features for video and voice calls to Facebook Messenger, Ruth Crisley, Director of Product Management at Facebook Messenger, said, “People will find their messaging apps secure and private and with these new features, We are giving them more control over what they want to be.
The social media giant has announced that it will soon begin testing end-to-end encryption features for Messenger group chats. Also, Facebook has announced the introduction of end-to-end encryption for direct messaging on Instagram.
To get started, Facebook will only test the end-to-end encryption feature for Messenger groups and Instagram direct messages among selected users, and eventually rollout for everyone around the world.
That said, Messenger will have end-to-end encryption options and users will have the flexibility to enable or disable it when needed. In WhatsApp, the end-to-end encryption option is enabled automatically and there is no way to turn it off.
