How to enable end-to-end encryption on Instagram’s Direct Message


One of the most popular social media platforms – Instagram is a place where users can share pictures, reels, videos, stories of their daily activities, and much more. In addition to all of these features, Instagram also enables users to send direct messages to the user they follow or other friends, but have you ever questioned the security of your account or the confidentiality of your conversations?

Earlier this year, Meta revealed that they would soon be implementing end-to-end encryption for the Instagram DM function. WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger already support this function. With this function, no one, not even Meta will be able to access your private message.
