A recent report revealed that both Meta-owned Messenger and Instagram have postponed plans to encrypt users’ messages until 2023, and in a post in The Telegraph, Antigone Davis, Metas head of safety, attributed the delay to concerns about user safety.

“We are taking our time to get this right, and we don’t plan to end the global rollout of end-to-end encryption by default across all of our messaging services until sometime in 2023,” Antigone Davis wrote in The Telegraph.

“As a company that connects billions of people around the world and has built industry-leading technology, we are determined to protect people’s private communications and keep them safe online,” he added.

And with only E2EE the sender and receiver will see their conversations. The company wants to make sure this doesn’t interfere with the platform’s ability to help stop criminal activity. Facebook first started rolling out encryption for its Messenger service in 2016, but it only works when Users use the Secret Chat feature of the Service.

Earlier this year, Meta said the default E2EE would become available on Instagram and Messenger “sometime in 2022 at the earliest.”

Facebook has been criticized over the years for being slow to implement end-to-end encryption by default on all of its platforms, in addition to this, Meta also plans to standardize the infrastructure behind the three messaging platforms – Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram Direct.
