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.
