Popular instant messaging app imo has introduced a new ‘SecretChat’ feature with end-to-end encryption to safeguard users’ data, a press release of imo said on Sunday.

This new feature comes with facilities such as message self-destructing after the session and dissemination control, which means the entire conversation will be wiped out instantly after exiting the chat session, thus ensuring no trace of the conversation.

Chat sessions of the users will be protected through end-to-end encryption.

The most important aspect of this new feature is the dissemination control functions, it said.

Under this function, no one can copy, forward, share, download, screenshot, or record any private chat conversations.

This feature will enable imo users to communicate with greater confidence and security when sharing their private matters, imo said.

Around 150 million free calls, videos, and pictures are exchanged using imo every day in Bangladesh.

In 2020, 96 billion messages and 26 billion audio and video calls were made by Bangladeshi imo users.
