imo to ensure users’ data protection with end-to-end encrypted “SecretChat” feature


Dhaka : Popular instant messaging app imo has introduced a new “SecretChat” feature with end-to-end encryption to safeguard users’ data. 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.

The secret chat feature is available in the attachment bar of the chat interface with a specific contact.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. 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.

To ensure enhanced security experience for the users, imo has rolled outa series of security measures over the last few months. In December 2020, imo introduced a new enhanced phone number verification system for Bangladeshi users to protect user information, especially when the user is switching numbers. This verification system does not allow the old phone number to access the associated imo account. Consequently, the relevant data remains intact and secure.

A significant portion of the population in Bangladeshconnects through imo. Around 150 million free calls, videos, and pictures are exchanged using imo every day in Bangladesh. Apart from that, 96 billion messages and 26 billion audio and video calls were made by Bangladeshi imo users in 2020. These stats clearly indicate more and more people are relying on imo for communication needs. The recently-launched “SecretChat” feature will further enable users to connect and communicate more securely on imo.
