Your Messages On Instagram Will Be Safe And Secure Soon Because Instagram Is Working On Creating A Pin For End-To-End Encrypted Messages

Instagram and other platforms always work to make sure that their users are getting a secure in-app experience. Due to a lot of users on Instagram, it is hard to maintain the security of the app along with introducing many other features. Instagram DMs are a great way to communicate with your friends and followers but they are not too secure, are they? Well, now it's the good news that Instagram is adding a pin to your end-to-end encrypted messages so you can securely access them, as spotted by Alessandro Paluzzi. This way if you are chatting with a friend, only you and them will be able to access the messages on the device with the pin.

This update is still in the development phase so we do not know when it will be available for all users. One thing to remember is that this update is only for encrypted messages on Instagram. Using this update, you will be able to securely access your end-to-end encrypted messages by going to the secure storage on your Instagram DMs. As end-to-end encrypted messages are only for you and the person you are messaging, it is great to add extra security to them.

Not even Facebook can access these messages between you and the other person. Both of you must have the pin if you need to open the chat. There is also an option to change the pin too. As the pin will be set in secure storage, there are many other settings in there too. You can manage as well as delete your secure storage. This means any messages between two persons will be deleted and no one will be able to access them ever.
