Meta finally starts rolling out default end-to-end encryption for Messenger

Meta finally starts rolling out default end-to-end encryption for Messenger

After years of promises and limited tests, Meta has started rolling out default end-to-end encryption protection for Messenger. In an announcement, Mark Zuckerberg said that personal chats and calls will get default end-to-end encryption. However, encryption for group chats still remains an opt-in feature. End-to-end encryption is an important security layer as it doesn’t allow Meta or other third-party entities to access the content of a chat. “This has taken years to deliver because we’ve taken our time to get this right. Our engineers, cryptographers, designers, policy experts, and product managers have worked tirelessly to rebuild Messenger features from the ground up,” Meta’s Head of Messenger, Loredana Crisan, said in a blog post. Meta first introduced the end-to-end encryption feature on Messenger in a limited test in 2016 via a “secret conversations” mode. In 2021, the company brought the encryption feature for voice and video calls on the app. The social networking giant began providing an end-to-end encryption option for group chats and calls in January 2022. In August 2022, Meta started testing end-to-end encryption for …

Meta plans to roll out default end-to-end encryption for Messenger by the end of the year

Meta plans to roll out default end-to-end encryption for Messenger by the end of the year

Meta said today that the company plans to enable end-to-end encryption by default for Messenger by the end of this year. The tech giant is also expanding its test of end-to-end encryption features to “millions more people’s chats.” The company has been building end-to-end encryption features in Messenger for years now. However, most of them have been optional or experimental. In 2016, Meta started rolling out end-to-end encryption protection through a “secret conversations” mode. In 2021, it introduced such an option for voice and video calls on the app. The company made a similar move to provide an end-to-end encryption option for group chats and calls in January 2022. In August 2022, Meta started testing end-to-end encryption for individual chats. There is increasing pressure on Meta to enable end-to-end encryption so the company or others can’t access users’ chat messages. Protecting individual communications has become more important after a girl and her mother in Nebraska pleaded guilty to abortion charges in July after Meta handed over her DMs to cops. Last year, the police prosecuted …

Strive Health grabs 6M to provide end-to-end kidney care

Strive Health grabs $166M to provide end-to-end kidney care

It’s widely known that healthcare is expensive in the United States and that patients are looking for better quality of care that is more cost-effective. That kind of care, called “value-based,” has been referenced a lot in recent years. Just this week I just wrote about Carrum Health’s $45 million Series B investment to offer value-based cancer care. When it comes to your kidneys, Strive Health is working to provide value-based care specifically to the 37 million adults living with chronic kidney disease. Chris Riopelle, co-founder and CEO of Strive Health told TechCrunch that healthcare used to be mainly fee-for-service where the incentive was if you did more work, more reimbursement would come. “While that is necessary, important and valuable, it doesn’t take into account fee-for-value, which is if you do a lot of good work, you should create a bunch of value and have very high-quality outcomes,” Riopelle said. “My definition of ‘value-based care’ is making sure the organizations that are responsible for caring for patients are really focused on the outcomes and the …

Microsoft launches Fabric, a new end-to-end data and analytics platform

Microsoft launches Fabric, a new end-to-end data and analytics platform

Microsoft today launched Microsoft Fabric, a new end-to-end data and analytics platform (not to be confused with Azure Service Fabric). The new platform centers around Microsoft’s OneLake data lake, but can also pull in data from Amazon S3 and (soon) Google Cloud Platform, and includes everything from integration tools, a Spark-based data engineering platform, a real-time analytics platform and, thanks to the newly improved Power BI, an easy-to-use visualization and AI-based analytics tool. There is also a new no-code developer experience that allows users to monitor their data in real time and trigger actions and notifications based on it. All of these tools are tightly integrated and, of course, Microsoft will also integrate its AI Copilot into Fabric. “Over the last five to 10 years, there has been a pretty massive level of innovation — which is great and that’s awesome because there’s lots of new technologies out there — but it’s also caused a lot of fragmentation of the modern data stack,” Arun Ulag, Microsoft’s corporate VP for Azure Data, told me. “There’s literally …

Entro raises M to for its end-to-end secrets security solution

Entro raises $6M to for its end-to-end secrets security solution

Entro, a Tel Aviv-based startup that is building a security platform that helps enterprises manage and protect their secrets like account credentials, certificates and API keys, today announced that it has raised a $6 million seed round led by StageOne Ventures and Hyperwise Ventures.  A number of angel investors, including Trusteer and Transmit Security founders Rakesh Loonkar and Mickey Boodaei, as well as Imperva founder Amichai Shulman also participated in this round. Today’s enterprises often have to manage thousands of secrets across an ever-growing number of services — and often, they don’t even know how many their employees have created. These secrets are also often scattered and secret scanners and similar tools exist to ensure that this information doesn’t leak, these tools don’t know anything about the context in which these secrets are used. If there is a secret exposed in a piece of source code that already had its privileges removed, then that’s not exactly a high priority for remediation, for example. The company was co-founded by Itzik Alvas (CEO) and Adam Cheriki (CTO), …

Messenger ramps up testing of default end-to-end encryption

Messenger ramps up testing of default end-to-end encryption

Meta announced today that it has started gradually expanding testing default end-to-end encryption for Messenger. The messaging service is also bringing some of its standard features to end-to-end encrypted chats, including chat themes, custom chat emojis and reactions, group profile photos, link previews and active status. Over the next few months, millions of users around the world will continue to see some of their chats gradually upgraded with end-to-end encryption. Messenger will notify people in these individual chat threads as they are upgraded. Meta says the process in which it selects and upgrades individual threads is random so that there isn’t a negative impact on the company’s infrastructure and users’ chat experience. Image Credits: Meta “We know people want a space to connect and they want to know that those conversations are private, safe and secure,” Meta said in a blog post. “That is why we’ve spent time building a team of talented engineers, cryptologists, designers and policy experts who are all committed to rolling out default end-to-end encryption on Messenger.
