Facebook, the largest social networking company, has announced the introduction of a new privacy feature for Messenger.
According to a statement issued by Facebook, the purpose of introducing privacy features is to provide a safe environment for users and give them more control.
Messenger app lock
Facebook has introduced a separate feature for users to lock the Messenger app, which aims to secure the user’s chat and prevent others from accessing it.
The company has added a fee and fingerprint lock feature in the messenger app, which will be available to users as they choose to unlock their mobile by going to their privacy settings.
It is important to note that Face Lock or Fingerprint Lock will be used by users who already have this feature in their mobile, ie they unlock their mobile with the help of Face Lock or Fingerprint.
According to a Facebook spokesperson, the purpose of this feature is to protect the user’s account so that when someone uses his phone, he will not be able to access Messenger.
In addition, Facebook has introduced a new section in the privacy settings where users will be able to easily access the app, block IDs, and others.
