In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the MercifulVerily, all praise is for Allah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own souls (and from our bad deeds). Whomsoever Allah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, (alone and without any partner) and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger.

Facebook #39;s WhatsApp already uses so called end to end encryption, which locks up messages so that even Facebook can 't read their contents. Facebook plans to extend that protection to Messenger and Instagram Direct.But the officials will ask Facebook to hold off in an open letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, which reportedly reads:
It remains to be seen how many people will download yet another social media app, but Facebook has used its broad reach to drive growth for Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, which consistently rank among the most downloaded worldwide. Facebook's apps have more than 2.7 billion monthly users, per the company's last quarterly report. Threads can be seen as another effort by Facebook to copy the features of rival Snapchat, the Snap owned app popular among U.S. teens. Facebook describes Threads as a "camera first" messaging app, suggesting a direct comparison with Snapchat, even though there are some distinctions.
The vulnerability has been acknowledged by Facebook and has been patched in WhatsApp version 2.19.244. The company has asked users to update their WhatsApp messenger to the new version to stay safe from the bug. The security loophole was discovered by "technologist and information security enthusiast" Awakened on Github.The new WhatsApp bug relies on an attacker sending the harmful GIF file to a user via any channel, including email or any other messaging platform. Once the GIF is on the device, the attack gets triggered by merely opening the media gallery within WhatsApp. "Since WhatsApp shows previews of every media (including the GIF file received), it will trigger the double free bug and our RCE exploit," the security researcher explained.
WhatsApp is the world 's most popular chat platform, boasting 1.6 billion users. Part of WhatsApp 's appeal are the regular automatic updates it offers, helping it stay ahead of rivals such as Facebook Messenger. The messaging app has more exciting features in store for its users ndash; here is what you can expect.
Facebook is changing the way users discover businesses and engage with bots on the platform.
Facebook is phasing out the Messenger discover tab, a tool it launched two years ago to help users find new bots and businesses.The discover tab, which was first announced at Facebook 's F8 developer conference in April 2017, was designed to help extend Messenger 's utility beyond a simple messaging app, with categories such as sports, news, shopping, finance, education, and more. However, with Facebook ramping up its push to evolve and refocus Messenger, it seems that it 's now looking to simplify and declutter the app.
Today, Facebook says the Discover tab will be pulled from the Messenger app over the next several months. Instead, it will invest in making sure Facebook users are directed to interact with businesses via Messenger in other ways. "We want to make it more seamless for people to reach out to businesses on Messenger in places where they re already looking to connect, " explains Facebook, of its decision to kill off the Discover feature. "We will put more investment into tools to connect people and businesses including updates to m.me links, web plugins, various entry points across our family of apps, as well as ad products that lead to Messenger, " the company says.
