As technology advances the need for security becomes something of increasing concern. Chatting on Facebook and Instagram can be disastrous for so many reasons and that is why Facebook has launched the vanish mode that makes messages disappear automatically after being seen.
Facebook Messenger and Instagram users can now activate vanish mode by swiping up on an existing chat. Once vanish mode is activated chats that have been read by the opposite party disappear after a while. Also, the person will be notified when vanish mode is activated if you try to take a screenshot of the chat.
Bridget Pujals Facebook’s Messenger product manager said that “this feature was designed with safety in mind” and we can all relate to what she meant by this statement.
The Facebook vanish mode is currently available in the US for Facebook Messenger users and it said to be available later in the EU, also vanish mode for Instagram will also come later.
