Now you can have encrypted conversations on Facebook, thanks to its roll out of end-to-end encryption for messenger users.
The feature is called as ‘secret conversations’ and can be found by clicking the top-right button. One has to turn on the feature to use it.
David Marcus, VP of Facebook Messaging products, had shared on a Facebook post during July’16 about the end-to-end encryption function. Wired’s Andy Greenberg, got a confirmation from a Facebook spokesperson that all messenger users can use ‘secret conversations’. However, every user should be able to use it for the conversations they choose than making it a default option.
Facebook hasn’t publicised the roll out yet.
