End-to-End Encryption

Meta commissioned Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) to independently assess our plans to expand end-to-end encryption by default to Messenger and Instagram DMs.

The assessment found that expanding end-to-end encryption enables the realization of a diverse range of human rights and recommended a range of integrity and safety measures to address unintended adverse human rights. 

The report includes 45 recommendations. Our response details our commitment to implement 34 of the recommendations, partly implementing 4, assessing the feasibility of 6 and taking no further action on one.
