Messenger’s New Chat & Call Encryption ​| PLUGHITZ Live

Meta’s Statements Regarding The Chats & Calls Encryption

When you’re handling your user’s safety and privacy, having a clean communication method is essential. That’s why, following the announcement of the encrypted updates, people in charge of the project from every party made many public statements.

But What Does Encryption Mean?

Encryption ensures that only people in a conversation can read the messages sent back and forth, nobody else. For example, your internet service provider or anyone who might be listening in on your connection can’t read your texts.

The Ups And Downs Of Encryption

Encryption may be useful against hackers or attackers who access accounts, searching for specific and delicate information. If you think about it, whatever you say or send is protected, like your credit card or social security numbers.
