Facebook, the social networking juggernaut is testing self destroying messages for its users. The feature lets users set timer for conversations to disappear once sent. The features called “secret conversations” will be secured via end-to-end encryption from both the sender and the recipient. Users will have an option to set a timer for how long they want the messages to exist between senders and the recipient, and will disappear completely afterward.
In its blog post, Facebook says that feature will be available to the users as optional setting for conversations that are highly sensitive. The post read:
“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.”
Marcus hints a wider rollout of the Facebook Secret Conversations feature later this summer.
