Facebook Adding End-to-End Encryption to Messenger via “Secret Conversations”

Earlier few days ago whatsapp has introduced us with End-to-End Encryption in which messages sent to other person are encrypted completely with end to end encryption which make your chat secure and not one can access to your personal messages except sender & receiver. This feature was launched by whatsapp officially for their all users.
End-to-end encryption on WhatsApp applies to everything or every feature that is available on WhatsApp. Whether it’s calls, messages, photos, videos, files, and even voice messages, all of them will be encrypted. So technically nobody apart from you or your friend will be able to understand them. In transit from one device to another the data will only appear to be garbled text without the keys to put that text together, which resides on devices being used to communicate. Moreover, there are separate keys for each conversation or chat so WhatsApp has provided something really secure indeed.
