Facebook roll out Messenger "Secret Conversations" end-to-end encrypted that can also self destruct

You probably don’t want Facebook snooping on your private conversations, so may have steered clear of Messenger previously, but the good news is the social network now lets you send private messages to friends which can only be read on the device of the person you're communicating with -- and not by Facebook itself.

Facebook Secret Conversations started being tested on a limited basis three months ago, but is now available to most users.

It lets you create end-to-end encrypted one-to-one secret conversations though the Messenger app for Android and iOS (not through Facebook on the web), and you can currently send text, photos and stickers. You can also set a timer to have your messages disappear from the conversation.

It’s very easy to send a secret message, just follow these steps:

  1. From the  tab, tap 
  2. Tap Secret in the top right
  3. Select who you want to message
  4. If you want, tap "timer icon"  in the text box and set a timer to make the messages disappear after seen.

1. Select one on your contact list and create a message

2. Tap on (!) icon

3. Tap the Secret Conversation

4. Now compose a message and if you want it to self destruct of disappear  Tap the (timer icon)  and set your time..

Secret conversations are currently only available in the Messenger app on iOS and Android, so they won't appear on Facebook chat or messenger.com. They're also only visible on the device where you create the conversation and the device the recipient uses to open the conversation.
