No more screenshots of facebook messages without the other person knowing!
Marke Zuckerberg, has announced that facebook will be introducing an update to “disappearing messages” or “vanish mode” on the facebook platform. This feature will make all new messages disappear in 12 hours when turned on, something similar to Snapchat.
Mark Zuckerberg wrote on facebook:
“New update for end-to-end encrypted Messenger chats so you get a notification if someone screenshots a disappearing message,” and also wrote “We’re also adding GIFs, stickers, and reactions to encrypted chats too.”
He also showed in a screenshot that when you have the disappearing messages activated on your messenger you will be notified with a message like this “[Facebook user’s name] took a screenshot” whenever you do so.
This feature is available in most parts of the United States and will be introduced across Europe in the next few weeks, according to USA Today.
