Users positively value the advances in security that software developers put into their apps. No matter its nature, whether it is a game or a social media app, everything has to be under control. But today not all applications are so secure and in the case of those that are dedicated to sending messages it is essential. For that reason Facebook finally provides Messenger end-to-end encryption for calls and video calls.
Finally Messenger has safer calls
Facebook has some of the most used applications on mobile devices. If you don’t have Facebook installed maybe you have Instagram and if this is not the case maybe WhatsApp is the one you use to communicate with your friends. If we focus on the phone app, it is one of the most secure in Menlo Park, pBut finally it is not the only safe service that the company has.
And it is that today the company directed by Mark Zuckerberg has decided to put a great improvement to the other messaging app. We talk about Messenger and its new point-to-point encryption system in calls and video calls. As you know, the service integrated into Facebook supports voice and video communications over the Internet. This is a great addition rather than a first for the company that it was time to incorporate.
According to the statement released by Menlo Park “the content of your messages and calls in an end-to-end encrypted conversation is protected from the moment it leaves your device until the moment it reaches the receiver’s device. This means that no one else, including Facebook, can see or hear what is being sent or said. “
Messenger gets the best of WhatsApp
As we said before, Messenger’s improved security isn’t a big news, but if something necessary. Facebook knows that this has become a standard, something that a messaging application can do without and they have finally added it to their other messaging app. And yes, we say this about ‘the other’ because the app that holds the first place is WhatsApp, which also belongs to Facebook and which was also one of the first to put this feature at the service of users.
