In this era of cybercrime it has become important to protect your data and chats. For this it is necessary that you use such apps which are safe. However, a shocking report has come out about Facebook Messenger. It has been claimed that using this application means that your chats are ‘in danger’ and can be read by outsiders.
In an interview with The Sun, Spylix expert and CEO Steven Walker said: “To the surprise of many, Facebook Messenger is one of the few apps that iPhone users should never have installed on their devices. ” “They are so popular that people trust them blindly. But be aware that Facebook Messenger does not offer end-to-end encryption.
Avoid Facebook Messenger?
No third party would want to know what they’re talking about on Messenger. But not having end-to-end encryption means your words are at risk. Leaking of chats from celebrities has become a common thing now. Given the security gap, Walker recommends using apps that provide better security and end-to-end encryption.” WhatsApp tops the list.
