Tech News Week 17: This week, famous instant messaging applications IMO introduced a new ‘Secret Chat’ function that uses end-to-end encryption to secure user privacy.
In the Asian subcontinent, this messaging service is extremely common. Developing countries such as India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh have a large number of consumers who use IMO on a regular basis. IMO, the instant messaging app has several exclusive features that have seen it grow in popularity in a limited period of time. However, new campaign strategies such as phoney notifications, push notifications with advertisements, and actively bombarding the user experience with ads have only served to reduce user popularity. As a result, they are incorporating innovative features in an attempt to reclaim their reputation. One of them is the latest announcements.
‘Self-destruction’ of the message at the end of the session and ‘dissemination access’ of the message are two advantages of this latest functionality. That is, if you leave a chat session, any of your messages will be erased automatically, and no one will be able to find them again.
In IMO, the latest hidden chat functionality can be located in the connection bar of a specific contact’s chat interface. Via end-to-end encryption, this function will ensure the confidentiality of chat session content.
The role of decimation control is the most significant aspect of this new feature. Nobody would be allowed to archive, forward, upload, or download private conversations if this feature is activated. Furthermore, as a consequence of the functionality, snapshots of conversations or videos are not possible. As a result, IMO users can feel more confident and secure while dealing with their personal problems.

According to a tweet, the common instant messaging app has implemented a series of protection enhancements in recent months to help consumers feel more safe while using emoji. IMO unveiled a phone number authentication scheme in December of last year to secure the details of Bangladeshi consumers. This authentication mechanism protects users, particularly when they change phone numbers. The old phone number would be unable to enter the account records associated with IMO through this authentication scheme, ensuring that the correct information is safeguarded.
