You can now secure your Facebook Messenger with the face ID

Facebook now gives you more layers of security for your Facebook messenger with the Face ID on iPhone and Ipad. Now you don’t need to worry to give your friends your phone and they will not be able to check-out your messenger chat.

This new feature of Facebook is available on the Apple App store and its another step by Facebook on the privacy and security of users. It will take some time for Android users, and may be available in the next few months.

Facebook also told The Verge about a few new privacy features arriving for Messenger in upcoming tests:

It’s going to start offering users more control over who can message them (the company didn’t offer much detail on how this will work), and it’s going to start blurring photos from people who message you without your approval so that you don’t have to open a potentially troubling image just to view a new message and know if you want to chat with someone. A similar feature is already available on Instagram and WhatsApp. Facebook didn’t say when this would start arriving in Messenger.
