Το facebook διαβάζει τα μηνύματα που στέλνονται μέσω του messenger

Γράφτηκε από

Στον απόηχο του σκανδάλου της Cambridge Analytica ο ιδρυτής και CEO της εταιρείας σε μια συνεντευξή του αποκάλυψε ότι το facebook σκανάρει τα μηνύματα που ανταλλάσονται μέσω του messenger με αυτοματοποιημένα συστήματα για να αποτρέπει την ανταλλαγή μηνυμάτων με ύποπτο υλικό, πχ υπερσύνδεσμος με malware.

The social network noted that all content on the site must conform to identical “community standards.” Posts or messages that seem to run against these standards can be reported by fellow users, in which case the company’s “community operations” team conducts a review. Sometimes, automated tools conduct a review as well.

“For example, on Messenger, when you send a photo, our automated systems scan it using photo matching technology to detect known child exploitation imagery or when you send a link, we scan it for malware or viruses,” a Facebook Messenger spokeswoman said in a statement. “Facebook designed these automated tools so we can rapidly stop abusive behavior on our platform.”

Facebook further noted that the ways in which Messenger looks into users’ messages are, in fact, “very similar to those that other internet companies use today.”

However, another major Facebook-owned chat app prides itself on being entirely unable to read the content sent across its platform. WhatsApp, which Facebook acquired in 2014, boasts end-to-end encryption, which means that WhatsApp cannot read messages at all. While Messenger does have an encrypted option, users have to opt into it and toggle it on.
