Messenger adds end-to-end encryption for everyone


Messenger, Meta/Facebook’s messenger, improves its security a little more with end-to-end encryption for everyone. The feature had its debut in 2016, but was not available for all uses. It is now.

End-to-end encryption for everyone on Messenger

In 2016, end-to-end encryption on Messenger was for text messages. Now it’s available for group chats and multi-party calls. It was in test last year, it is now available for everyone.

However, Messenger still does not enable end-to-end encryption by default. It is the users who must do the necessary in terms of messaging. Activation by default should normally take place in 2023, but things can change in a year.

Also, it is now possible to put GIFs, stickers and reactions in encrypted conversations. Users are also able to hold their finger on a message to reply or forward it. On the other hand, the messenger is inspired by Snapchat and sends a notification to the user if someone participating in the encrypted conversion takes a screenshot.

We hope these features will improve your private messaging experience and that we will continue to improve your encrypted conversations with friends and family.”adds the group.
