“Providing more ways for people to safely share is an important part of making the world more open and connected. Whether you’re asking a doctor for medical advice, sending sensitive account information to your spouse, or even your Social Security Number, it’s important to have options available for sharing these kinds of very sensitive messages. That’s why I’m glad to announce that Messenger is starting to test a feature called secret conversations that will both encrypt messages end-to-end, and enable you to set a timer to control how long each message you send stays visible in the conversation on both devices (yours and your recipient’s).
To be clear, your existing “regular” messages and calls on Messenger already benefit from strong security systems as Messenger uses secure communications channels — just like banking services — all around. But we’re rolling out this additional capability as an option for the most sensitive conversations you might need to have. We’re making this an optional feature because a number of popular Messenger features don’t currently work, or can’t work with end-to-end encrypted conversations, like using Messenger across multiple devices, archiving all your past conversations in case you lose your phone, and sending rich content like animated GIFs.
We’re looking forward to getting feedback before we make this feature more broadly available this summer. We’ve put a lot of thought into the design and implementation of this capability, and we are grateful to the security and privacy experts who have given us their valuable input all along this journey.”
