The messenger service of social media site Facebook is used by millions of users from all over the world. A new feature is being rolled out for the users on the Messenger app, with the help of which chats and personal messages can be secured. With the help of the new feature, no one will be able to read your message even after getting access to the phone by locking the app.
J Sullivan, Director of Production Management, Messenger Privacy and Safety, gave information about the new feature in a statement. He said that a new authentication feature is available for iOS device users and will soon be rolled out for Android users as well. You can also get a new update on the Messenger app in the next few months. In this update, several additional controls will also be given on the messenger and the user will be able to decide who can message him or not.
