In this blog post, we will explore how to set up a secure and private conversation on Facebook Messenger. We’ll discuss how you can start a secret conversation, the features included in this type of message, and how it differs from regular messaging. Read on to learn more about how to use Facebook secret conversations today!
What is a secret conversation on Facebook?
When you message someone on Facebook, the default is that your conversation is public. But did you know that you can also start a secret conversation?
Secret conversations are end-to-end encrypted, which means that only you and the person you're messaging can read them. They're also not stored on Facebook's servers, so Facebook can't read them.
To start a secret conversation, just open up a new message and tap on the little lock icon in the top right corner. Then, enter the name of the person you want to message and hit send.
Your secret conversation will look like any other message thread, but it will have a little padlock next to it to indicate that it's encrypted. You can even set messages to disappear after a certain amount of time by tapping on the clock icon in the top right corner.
So if you want to keep your messages private, be sure to start a secret conversation next time you're messaging someone on Facebook!
How to enable Messenger’s secret conversations
Facebook's secret conversations feature allows you to have end-to-end encrypted conversations with another person on Messenger. This means that no one, not even Facebook, can read or listen to your conversations. Secret conversations are only available on the Messenger app for iPhone and Android, so you'll need to make sure you're using the latest version of the app.
To start a secret conversation:
1. Open the Messenger app and tap on the pencil icon in the upper right-hand corner.
2. Tap "New Message."
3. Tap "Secret" in the upper right-hand corner. This will bring up a list of your Facebook friends who also have secret conversations enabled. If you don't see anyone listed, it means they don't have secret conversations enabled yet. You can still send them a message, but it won't be end-to-end encrypted.
4. Tap on the person you want to start a secret conversation with and then tap "OK."
5. Your conversation will now be end-to-end encrypted. You'll know this because there will be a lock icon next to the person's name in the conversation window.
For iOS devices
If you're using an iOS device, there are a few extra steps you need to take to start a Facebook secret conversation. First, open the Facebook app and go to your inbox. Then, tap on the New Message icon and select the Secret option from the list of message types.
Now, you'll be able to choose who you want to have a secret conversation with by selecting their name from your list of Facebook friends. Once you've chosen a friend, the screen will switch to a new interface where your messages will appear in encrypted form.
To send an encrypted message, simply type out your message and hit the send button. Your friend will then receive the message in their private inbox where only they will be able to read it.
For Android devices
If you want to start a Facebook secret conversation on your Android device, there are a few things you need to do. First, open the Facebook Messenger app and tap on the icon in the top right corner that looks like a pencil. This will bring up the "New Message" screen. Next, tap on the icon in the top right corner that looks like a person with a plus sign next to it. This will allow you to add a new contact. Once you've added your contact, tap on their name to start a new message. On the next screen, tap on the icon in the top right corner that looks like a lock. This will enable secret conversations for this message thread. You can now start chatting privately with your contact!
