Messenger is an application that many users in Spain have installed on your Android phone. Thanks to the app, you can stay in touch with your Facebook friends, as well as other users on Instagram, after its recent integration with the social network. Some time ago the application introduced the possibility of having private conversations.

You can have these private chats with any of your contacts on Messenger. This is a kind of conversation where there is end-to-end encryption, which will guarantee that only the two people who participate in it will have access to these messages.

So you have secret conversations in Messenger

If you want to make sure that your chats are as private as possible, these secret conversations are the best way, thanks to the end-to-end encryption present in them. In the application we find two ways to have a secret conversation, so you can choose the desired way.

From the chat

Messenger secret conversation

In the first case we can open a secret conversation with someone with whom we already have a chat on Messenger. What is done then is to create a second conversation with said person, which is now a secret conversation, different from the normal chat that we had until now. The steps in this regard are:

  1. Open Messenger.
  2. Go to the chat you had with that person.
  3. Click on the «i» icon located in the upper right corner.
  4. Click on Secret conversation.
  5. A private chat opens.

Then you will be able have said private chat with this other person in the application, having the guarantee that there is an end-to-end encryption in it.

From the beginning of the app

Messenger secret conversation from start

There is a second way to start a private conversation in the app, possibly known to some. When entering the application on Android, we have a search engine, where we can find the person with whom to start a chat, but there is also a way to make said chat directly private. These are the steps:

  1. Open Messenger.
  2. Click on the pencil icon in the upper right (to open a new chat).
  3. Click on the padlock icon that appears in the upper right.
  4. If the icon is black now, you have already activated the secret conversation.
  5. Select the contact to talk to.
  6. Start writing.
