The Menlo Park, California-based social media giant said in a blog post that with the encryption protocol, nobody else, including Facebook, can see or listen to what's sent or said.

They added, "The content of your messages and calls in an end-to-end encrypted conversation is protected from the moment it leaves your device to the moment it reaches the receiver's device".
