Facebook today said it is exploring new features for Facebook Messenger that will give people the ability to secure their conversations. First, Facebook is looking at end-to-end encryption between two devices. Messages sent through an encrypted channel will be fully protected from prying eyes and visible only to the sender and the recipient. Facebook is calling these "secret conversations." Moreover, such conversations will support ephemeral content. Facebook says users can control the length of time messages will remain visible within the conversation — similar to Snapchat. Facebook imagines these tools will help protect sensitive and private information shared between two people. These features are available to a limited number of people now, but Facebook expects to expand them to more users by the end of summer.
