Facebook has begun testing a new privacy feature, Secret Chat for Facebook Messenger, according to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong. Conversations) mode provides end-to-end voice and video encryption.
Currently, Facebook Messenger’s chat mode only supports text messages and does not support audio and video calls. In addition, Facebook’s Help Center, Group Calls, GIFs, and Payments do not support end-to-end encryption. Facebook is enhancing and improving privacy protections, according to Wong. But considering that the chat pattern is not currently widespread, it is often ignored by many people. In addition, Facebook’s testing of encrypted audio and video calls in this special mode does not mean that regular audio and video calls made through the platform will also be encrypted.
