Facebook’s parent company, Meta, has announced the launch of the end-to-end encryption feature in Facebook Messenger. The company confirmed through a blog post that they have removed the said privacy feature by default in Messenger.
In January 2022, the company will introduce group messages and end-to-end encryption options for Messenger users. Fitch is also available in secret conversation mode. So now, the company plans to make the feature available in its default form.
Meta had confirmed their commitment in a letter to Fight for the Future at the beginning of August. The end-to-end encryption feature testing for Messenger will be available to any user and will be accessible to everyone in early 2024.
