Goal will delay plans to encrypt users’ messages in Facebook and Instagram until 2023, according to the company’s head of security, Antigone davis, in a note to the Telegraph on Saturday. The move comes as there have been multiple warnings to protect child safety amid encryption proposals, which can only be accessed by the sender and recipient of a message. Therefore, if they activated the encryption of messages, they would protect the abusers and it would be impossible to detect them.

“We are taking our time to get it right and we do not plan to finalize the global implementation of end-to-end encryption by default across all of our messaging services until sometime in 2023.” Davis announced.

In addition, he assured that Meta could detect abuses in its encryption plans through the use of unencrypted data, account information and user reports. “Our recent review of some historical cases showed that we would still have been able to provide critical information to authorities, even if those services had been end-to-end encrypted.” added.

Meta already uses end-to-end encryption in its WhatsApp messaging service and plans to extend it to the Messenger and Instagram apps in 2022.
