Facebook introduces E2EE for Messenger Calls
After almost five years of introducing end-to-end encryption chats, Facebook now introduces E2EE for Messenger calls.
End-to-end encryption or E2EE is utilized by several major messaging and video call platforms such as Facebook, Zoom, WhatsApp, Microsoft Team, and several others.
Basically, E2EE is one type of protocol that safeguards messages and any sort of communication going on between multiple users against the hackers who act as a middleman and try to peek into the conversations of the users.
Explaining about the E2EE, Ruth Kricheli, Facebook Messenger’s Director of Product Management, the calls and the messages within our Facebook environment is completely secured from the moment it leaves your device to the moment it reaches the receiver’s device.
She further said that nobody except you and the receiver can read messages or listen to the audio you shared. If you find anything wrong with this feature, you can instantly report to Facebook.
In 2020, Messenger reported having made up more than 150 million video calls in a day. Facebook observed a massive rise in voice and video calls the previous year.
Facebook Disappearing Messages
Along with the E2EE for Messenger calls, Facebook also released a disappearing messages feature. The users can pick from 5 seconds to 24 hours for disappearing the new messages.
Meanwhile, Facebook has plans to roll out the E2EE group chats and calls in the near future for enhanced privacy and security during the conversations taking place between the members of the group.
As usual, you will be able to block people you don’t want to have any sort of communication with and report the account if they violate any of Instagram’s policies.
