Facebook Messenger will notify you if someone screenshots your disappearing message

Jan 28 2022 Share

In an attempt to improve privacy on Facebook, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that Messenger will begin to notify its users when someone takes a screenshot of their disappearing messages in Secret Conversations.

The new updated for end-to-end encrypted Messenger will send users a notification if a screenshot is taken. Zuckerberg went on to announce that GIFs, stickers and reactions will be added to encrypted chats. This follows the introduction of disappearing messages back in November 2020, which were introduced to provide increased protection to Meta’s (then Facebook) platforms.

While notifications of such nature are not necessarily new to Messenger, there is one very importance difference in this update. The introduction of end-to-end encryption (E2EE) in Facebook’s messaging platforms is quite the upgrade from server-side encryption and has been called the gold standard of media privacy and security.

In a recent meeting with EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Stella Kyriakides, Health Minister Chris Fearne revealed that 98% of people aged 12 and over have received two jabs of the COVID-19 vaccination.

The Minister went on to state how over 75 per cent of Malta’s population has been vaccinated against the virus, highlighting how Malta’s successful vaccination roll out is the reason for the government’s recent lifting of restrictions. Fearne also revealed how 76% of individuals aged 18 and over have received the COVID-19 booster.

The Health Minister stated how Europe must not limit accessibility but rather contribute to the vaccination process of other parts of the world, alluding to Malta’s donation of vaccine jabs to countries in Africa and Asia.

“Could you kill a baby…?” Parents shocked by controversial question on school handout

"Could you kill a baby...?" Parents shocked by controversial question on school handout
Jan 28 2022 Share

Parents across Malta have expressed their concern after a photo of a questionable school question began making the rounds on social media. The question presents a ‘moral dilemma’ where the reader would have to imagine if they are left in a room with a baby who they know “will grow up to be a dictator who will kill millions.”

The question asks the student to explain in detail what they would do and why, going on to ask if they would ‘kill a baby even if [they] knew it would save millions’. Rightly so, parents began to question the reasoning behind why such a question would be featured in a school question.

Local political party ‘Partit Popolari’ took to Facebook to notify the general public that such a question was being asked in Maltese school handouts. The post highlighted that “common sense must prevail in the curriculum and the Education Department. Our children’s minds are not experiments!”

Do you agree with these statements?
