Signal, Threema and even WhatsApp have had the feature for a long time, and now it’s finally leading the way Facebook Messenger them: The end-to-end encryption. With it, using the service will be a little more secure.
Facebook Messenger now more secure
“We know people expect their Messenger apps to be secure, private, and give them space to express themselves,” reads a Facebook Messenger blog post. Therefore, end-to-end encryption is introduced.
As a reminder, this feature developed by the Signal service is not a brand new thing. Even the WhatsApp application, which is also from the meta universe, has this function – and has had it since 2016. So, six years later, end-to-end encryption is finally coming to Facebook Messenger.
The Federal Network Agency recently announced that 39 percent of the 2,141 people surveyed aged 16 and over use Facebook Messenger. Thus, numerous users are now benefiting from the new security, which was long obsolete.
By the way: Telegram does not use end-to-end encryption as a standard and is not available at all for group chats. This is about one of the reasons why you should consider deleting Telegram. And that’s why, according to experts, Signal is the most secure messenger we currently have.
