Facebook Announces End-to-End Encryption for Calls on Messenger.
Voice and video calls on Facebook are about to get a bit more secure as the company just announced that both calling options will come with end-to-end encryption. What this means is that your calls and video calls are secure. So sure that Facebook claims that even he can’t access his calls. This announcement comes after one-to-one text chats were given the same function since 2016.
According to TechRadar, Ruth Kricheli, Director of Product Management at Facebook Messenger also states that “People expect their messaging apps to be secure and private, and with these new features, we are giving them more control over how private they want their calls and chats to be.” The company says it is testing the new end-to-end encryption for group chats on Facebook and direct messages on Instagram.
It seems that more social media companies are moving towards end-to-end encryption, which in itself is a good thing. This means that our chats and calls will definitely be a bit more secure. It also means that if you want to disable the feature, you can. But, if we are honest, having end-to-end encryption is always better than the alternative.
