Express Yourself in Messenger’s End-to-End Encrypted Chats

Today, we’re announcing updates for Messenger’s opt-in end-to-end encrypted chats that will help improve your messaging experience. We know that people expect their messaging apps to be secure, private and provide them a space to be expressive. This is why we are continuing to introduce some of the rich features that you already love in Messenger to end-to-end encrypted chats. Building secure and fun interactive features takes time and requires our engineers to innovate and solve technical challenges, so this is part of a series of product updates as we keep improving our services. With cybercrime and hacking on the rise, it’s more important than ever to find great ways to connect with friends and family through private and secure communications. We’re excited to help you express yourselves in delightful ways with your friends and family.

What’s New?

We know the importance of safety and privacy when it comes to communicating with the people who matter most to you. End-to-end encryption protects you and your data from hackers, criminals and other prying eyes. We hope these features elevate your private messaging experience as we continue to improve your encrypted conversations with friends and family.
