Mark Zuckerberg warns Messenger Users Not to take Screenshots of Chats

Mark Zuckerberg, the head of Meta, the company behind Facebook, is giving users a heads-up about a new practice on Messenger. Messenger is an app that lets you send messages that disappear after some time, giving an extra layer of privacy. Zuckerberg wants to make sure users understand that taking screenshots of these messages might not be a good idea.

Zuckerberg just introduced an update that will alert users if someone takes a screenshot of a disappearing message. He’s also bringing in some fun features, like GIFs, stickers, and reactions, to make encrypted chats more engaging.

In a recent example, Zuckerberg showed how this notification works. He and his wife had a playful chat, and when he tried to screenshot it, a message popped up, letting him know that his wife would be informed. This is similar to what happens on Snapchat, another popular app where messages and pictures vanish after a while.


Messenger has recently added a feature that allows users to set their messages to disappear after they’ve been read. This extra layer of privacy is important to many users who want their conversations to stay private and not linger around.

So, why is Zuckerberg doing this? It’s all about respecting people’s privacy and creating a safer online space. When messages disappear, it can help people feel more comfortable sharing things that they might not want to stick around forever. But if someone takes a screenshot, it could make others worried about their private chats being saved without their knowledge.
