Facebook warning as ‘screenshot notifications’ to alert users on Messenger chat

The firm said that the update is part of its ‘huge investments’ into privacy.

Facebook has introduced screenshot notifications onto its Messenger service as part of a new update.

Mark Zuckerberg, who is the head of Facebook’s parent company Meta, announced a string of updates to the social media’s chat service this week.

As part of the changes, users will be able to get a notification if one of their disappearing messages has been screenshotted by the other user.

People are able to use this feature through Messenger’s ‘secret conversation’ functionality – which is similar to the encrypted messages sent on WhatsApp.

The firm is also adding GIFs, stickers, and reactions to encrypted chats.

Changes will not impact the non-encrypted version of Messenger.

Mark Zuckerberg posted a screenshot of the notifications in use.
