If you are concerned about your privacy and are concerned that your messages could be intercepted and read, you may not want to use Facebook Messenger or Instagram to send messages that could be more sensitive in nature. This is because none of these platforms have end-to-end encryption.
Now, Meta has announced that they would roll out end-to-end encryption for these platforms in 2022, but it looks like that has since shifted to 2023. This is according to Meta’s global security chief Antigone Davis, who wrote an opinion piece for the telegraph announced that the feature would not arrive until 2023.
The article talks about Meta’s products and services and what they do to make it safer for users to use. Davis also talks about how the company is taking a “three-pronged approach” to “preventing harm” and giving users more control. “We’re taking the time to get this right and we’re not planning on completing end-to-end encryption by default globally for all of our messaging services before 2023.”
While this doesn’t mean either of these platforms is “dangerous” when it comes to sending and receiving messages, if you have chats that may be of a sensitive nature you should probably look into alternatives like WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, etc. for the time being.
