In the coming weeks, Meta will begin testing automated end-to-end encrypted (E2EE) chat protection. The company is currently testing a chat backup storage, also protected by E2EE.

E2EE does not allow third parties, including the platform developer, to read the contents of chats. Meta first implemented E2EE in 2016 in WhatsApp and Messenger, with the feature now enabled by default on WhatsApp and optional on Messenger. The company said it plans to make E2EE the default setting on Messenger by next year.

Starting this week, the company is testing Messenger's secure online chat storage feature. At the moment it is only available for some users on iOS and Android. It will be possible to store your messages protected with E2EE in third-party services. iOS users, for example, can choose iCloud to store the secret key that gives them access to their backups.

In the coming weeks, Meta will begin testing automatic end-to-end encrypted chat protection: the most frequently used chats of users in the test group will be automatically encrypted using E2EE. Users of the test feature will still have access to their message history, but any new messages or calls will use E2EE.
