Expert urges not to use Facebook Messenger till next year
Cyber security expert Jack Daffman has urged people not to use the popular chat app Facebook Messenger until next year (2022). He said that chatting using Facebook Messenger is a risk now and advised to stay away from it until end-to-end encryption is implemented.
“You can have your personal conversations from secure apps, including WhatsApp and Single,” Duffman wrote in an article on Forbes. But, it is real. A third party can now access Messenger conversations from two devices. ‘
“Many of us may not know that end-to-end encryption services have not been automatically implemented in Facebook Messenger,” he wrote. You can go to settings yourself and make it a private conversation. But, this feature is not in group chat. ‘
The Facebook company is also aware of this security vulnerability. Some time ago, it also announced the provision of end-to-end encryption service in Messenger. This feature is expected to be available to users in the coming year 2022.
Until then, Dofman has suggested not to use Facebook Messenger for security reasons.
