Facebook Messenger gets a makeover: secure group chats from start to finish and more features

A large part of the complaints of some Internet users are claims about the security of what is discussed in the chat, which is evident because a large part of a person’s life is circulating on the Internet, since they manage many things from their mobile phones and on social networks, they tell friends and family in chats.

In this sense, Meta has spoken for several months that it is working every day to continue improving the security of its users’ data. One such development is that announced by Timothy Buck, Product Manager, on Messenger on Secure end-to-end group chats that provide interactive features.

For this reason, it is important to know something about this change that will definitely benefit you.

Not all chats on Messenger are end-to-end encrypted, but From now on, you can choose to encrypt new chats with your friends. We know that people expect their messaging apps to be safe, private and a space to express themselves. That’s why we continue to offer some Messenger features that people are already using, now for end-to-end encrypted chats,” Timothy Buck said.

He added: “Building fun, secure, and interactive features takes time and requires our engineers to innovate and solve technical challenges, so this is part of a series of updates we will make as we improve our services.” Now it’s more important than ever to find ways to connect with friends and family through private and secure communications.
