  1. How To Use Facebook Messenger Without A Facebook Account You Can Now Use Facebook Messenger Without A Facebook Account, Know How With over one billion users worldwide, Facebook Messenger is now one of the biggest messaging platforms worldwide. In order to have a Facebook Messenger app on your device, you need to have an active Facebook account. However, there are a lot of reasons that many people may not want to use Facebook but only the Messenger app. For instance, Facebook staples like pyramid schemes, political debates, and pointless status updates can fill some users with rage and using such a social media site is a big no-no for them. Similarly, there are users who are not interested in keeping up with friends online and rather catch up over a cup of coffee or on the phone instead of through liking each other’s perfect social media posts. But, what about those people who want to keep in touch with certain people who are not on any other platform except for Facebook Messenger. In such a scenario, is it possible to use Facebook Messenger app without having an active Facebook account? Yes, it is. You can stay in touch with your friends via Facebook Messenger, by following the steps below: Open Facebook’s deactivate account page. Ignore the photos of the people who will apparently miss you and scroll to the bottom. The last option says you can continue using Facebook Messenger even if you deactivate your account. Make sure this is not checked and just leave it as is. Scroll down and hit Deactivate. Now, your Facebook account will be deactivated. All your Facebook data will be safe until you are ready to log in again. Go ahead and open the Messenger app using your old Facebook credentials on your smartphone or log in via the website on your PC. You will notice that you can continue chatting with all your friends without losing any of your data. Please note that your deactivated Facebook account doesn’t get reactivated, if you are using Messenger. Your friends will only be able to contact you via the chat window in Facebook or the Messenger app. If you want to use Messenger and don’t have a Facebook account, then follow the instructions mentioned below: Download Facebook Messenger on iOS, Android, or Windows Phone. Open the app and enter your phone number. Tap Continue. You will get a code via SMS to confirm your number. Once you have done that you can key in phone numbers of your friends and start messaging them. Source
  2. Facebook Messenger Chatbots Can Leak Your Private Information Facebook Messenger chatbots jeopardize privacy: Report Facebook’s attempts to bring chatbots to its FB Messenger were appreciated by tech pundits as well as users. While businesses are making new attempts to woo customers with better experience, Facebook Messenger chatbots go a long way in making FB users life more comfortable. But this comes at the risk of your privacy according to a new research. According to tech website Venture Beat, businesses which are switching to Facebook Messenger for all service interactions will soon regret their decision because of possible customer information leaks. If people want to get the tracking information of their orders online, chatbots are a perfect solution for a successful communication, but the story is not same when it comes to sensitive data like bank account information or insurance company details. “Conversations with these businesses can be complex, emotionally-driven and often require sensitive and personal information to pass between the two parties. Consumers of these organizations need frequent and ongoing interaction,” the report notes. Venture Beat says the privacy and security needs for such sensitive communication and transactions are very high and trusting Facebook chatbots will be a big challenge for customers. As it is, Facebook users dont trust the networking giant with their data. Another reason for Messenger chatbot failure is the desire of businesses of owning the data. When hopping to Messenger to take advantage of the new technology, businesses have to share the exclusive data with the social networking giant. And it is only natural that Facebook will use this information for its own gains. Companies will have to realize that by giving away the vital proprietary data and information to Facebook, they are also giving up control of the customer. “Facebook openly says it is using the data flowing through its Messenger for Business platform, companies using it would be right to enter that relationship with skepticism,” the report said. With that data in the hands of the company selling ads to your competitors, the result could be detrimental, the report noted. Source

  5. Facebook Messenger Has a Hidden Soccer Game The game in Messenger celebrates EURO 2016 The football game is only available in Facebook’s Messenger app, and it’s quite easy to access. You simply need to start a conversation and send a football emoji to a friend. After you tap on the football emoji, the game starts automatically. The football game won’t work if you haven’t updated to the latest Messenger version first. The game allows you to do kick-ups in order to keep the ball in the air and prevent it from hitting the ground. It sounds easy, but it really isn’t. The game records your current best score and displays emojis in the background, each time you tap on the screen. It also takes into consideration if you’ve tapped directly in the center of the ball or on the side, which makes it bounce in different directions on the screen. When the score exceeds 10, the game adds some distractions. The interface is simple, there aren’t many things that you can do inside the game, but the whole experience is equally annoying and addictive. Facebook’s move is mainly targeted at users who are interested in EURO 2016 and the Copa America Centenario 2016. Just a few days ago, Facebook implemented SMS in Messenger for smartphones running on Android, so the company’s messaging application has surely gotten a lot of attention lately. Source

  7. How To Add Video Profile Picture On Facebook Here Is How To Add Video Profile Picture On Facebook on Android smartphones Facebook users who owned iPhone already had had the facility to record or upload a video to use as a live profile picture.But, Android smartphone owners had to wait up till now. But now Facebook has updated Facebook for Android, therefore you can also upload live video profile picture and make use of this marvelous opportunity to make your FB page even more magnificent.You can record a live profile picture using the Facebook app, but you’re limited to seven seconds. If you want to go longer, you can upload a video you’ve previously recorded or downloaded that is up to 60 seconds long. Step 1: Head to Your Profile Adding a live profile picture is a breeze. Just open up the Facebook app, navigate to your profile, and tap on your profile picture. You’ll see a menu pop up with a few options, including “Take a New Profile Video” and “Upload Video or Photo.” Tapping on “Take a New Profile Video” opens up the recorder. Just tap on the red circle at the bottom to start the capture. Again, you’ll only have seven seconds of recording to work with. Step 2: Trim & Adjust Options On the next screen, you can use the blue brackets to trim your video if necessary. Also, audio from the video is enabled by default, but you can turn it off by tapping on the speaker icon. It is recommended that the sound be turned off. On the next screen you need to select a thumbnail. You can scroll along the images on the bottom to find the point in the video that you think would work best as a thumbnail. Once you’re done with that, hit “Use” in the top-right corner. Facebook will take a minute to upload your video, but once that’s done your new live profile picture will be there for all to see. Step 3: Select Video (Upload Only) Uploading a video from elsewhere is basically the same process. Tap on your profile picture to open the menu, and then select “Upload Video or Photo.” This will take you to your phone’s gallery. Tap on your desired video to enter the editor, crop down if you want, then choose your thumbnail, hit “use” and wait for the video to upload to Facebook. You can use this feature if you have only Android smartphone to access Facebook. Try this out and let us know how your new Facebook video profile has turned out. Source

  9. I've used a lot of different instant messaging services over the years to keep in contact with friends online. These days, most people tend to just chat on Facebook, which is why the Messenger app for mobile devices is so popular (if a bit detested, for being a separate app). And it looks like the company is bringing their widely-used app to Windows. Thanks to a listing in the Microsoft Store, we know that Facebook is preparing to launch a Windows 10 Universal app for Messenger. What's interesting is that even if you have Windows 10, it doesn't look like you can currently download it. It's possible that only a small number of people currently have access to it. Here's a video (in Italian, unfortunately) showing off the features: What I find interesting is that the app does appear to be only for PC at the moment. That's the platform where this app is the least useful. It doesn't appear to have any features that can't be accessed while simply having Facebook open in your browser. And what's more, being a Windows 10 universal app means that it'll take up your entire screen. This means that you won't be able to multitask while chatting with friends. You won't even be able to continue to scroll through your Facebook feed. Instead, you'll just stare at your chat window as you wait for the other person to finally respond. It's hard to judge an app before it even comes out, but I'm pretty against universal apps that don't need to be full screen. Just use the browser. Or if you want extra notifications and chat windows that you can have on your screen along side other programs, just use a third-party program like Trillian. It keeps your chats in separate windows (or grouped together, if you'd like) and doesn't take up your whole screen. SourcE
  10. Although users are now saturated with options on mobile and desktop for encrypted messaging, very few of the tools available deal with the core problem of metadata. Even if the content of your messages is kept from prying eyes, it may still be possible for a resourceful attacker to see who you are, and who you're talking to. Now, one program designed to tackle that problem head-on has passed its first professional security audit, signaling that it is on the right track for wider use. Ricochet, which is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, announced the audit results on Monday. “They had very positive things to say about code quality and security overall,” John Brooks, the program's maintainer, told Motherboard in a chat using Ricochet. The audit was carried out by cybersecurity company NCC Group, and financed by the Open Technology Fund's (OTF) 'Red Team Lab' project. Ultimately, the OTF is funded by US Congressional appropriations. Mark Manning, a senior consultant who is based in NCC Group's New York office, told Motherboard in an email that, “The report should reflect that while there are improvements that can be made, the Ricochet project (during the period that the audit was carried out) takes security seriously.” One vulnerability was found that could deanonymize users, Brooks said, and that issue has been fixed with the latest release. This vulnerability was also independently found by a member of the Ricochet community, where users have been reviewing the code on their own for longer. Ricochet, in its current form, has been around since 2014. What sets Ricochet apart from other messaging clients is its use of Tor hidden services. “The concept with Ricochet is: how can we do messaging without any server in the middle—without trusting anything to forward your messages to your contacts,” Brooks said. “That turns out to be exactly one of the problems that hidden services can solve: to contact someone, without anybody in the middle knowing who you are or who you're contacting.” With a hidden service, a user's traffic never leaves the Tor network, making it much harder for an attacker to see where traffic is going or coming from. “Every Ricochet client hosts a hidden service, and that's what you're giving out with your Ricochet ID—it's literally an .onion address. Anyone with that address can contact you,” Brooks continued. Ricochet also encrypts the contents of messages by default. The funders behind the audit see Ricochet's potential, especially in supporting activists and other groups at risk of surveillance. “The Open Tech Fund supports technologies designed to protect human rights defenders, journalists, and political dissidents, among others, who are living in some of the world's most oppressive places,” a spokesperson for Radio Free Asia, of which the Open Tech Fund is a part, told Motherboard in an email. “We support audits of Internet freedom projects in order to improve their security and reliability by finding and addressing vulnerabilities.” “We’re interested in technologies that make up the growing Tor ecosystem, especially those developing novel censorship-resistant capabilities,” the spokesperson continued. “We view Ricochet as a tool pushing forth the development of Tor hidden services, a technology utilized by many sites—such as Facebook—to circumvent repressive censorship, particularly in authoritarian countries.” But, even with the successful audit, that doesn't necessarily mean users who rely on encrypted programs for highly sensitive work, or to ensure their freedom, should start using only Ricochet. Brooks referred to the “Be Careful” statement on the project's website, which reads that “Ricochet is an experiment. Security and anonymity are difficult topics, and you should carefully evaluate your risks and exposure with any software.” As for what happens now, Brooks is looking to get funding for the development of Ricochet itself, and implement a file-sharing feature. “It'll be an exciting year,” he said. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/ricochet-encrypted-messenger-tackles-metadata-problem-head-on
  11. A future Facebook intern created a Google Chrome extension earlier this week to highlight the precise location data the social media service collects through its Messenger app. ​ Through his extension, Aran Khanna, a computer science and mathematics student at Harvard College, was able to create maps of Facebook users' locations based off their message tags. ​ His aggregated data allowed him to monitor messages for patterns that, in turn, identified users' homes and daily life routines, such as their class schedules. Messenger collects location data by default and stores latitude and longitude coordinates. ​ Khanna pinpointed senders' locations to within less than a meter. ​ A Facebook spokesperson told SCMagazine.com that it will roll out improvements to Messenger soon but in the meantime “people can still choose to turn location off at any time by tapping the blue arrow in the message composer.” ​ ​ Source
  12. WhatsApp is now one of the strongest messaging apps you can find on Android, thanks to new end-to-end encryption for messages. That means that your messages are totally secure and cannot be decrypted by WhatsApp at all — no matter what. Other apps offer similar end-to-end security, but WhatsApp is by far the largest of the bunch. The new encryption features are said to be heading to iOS soon as well. The new feature comes from a partnership with Open Whisper Systems, best known for their TextSecure apps. Open Whisper CTO Moxie Marlinspike says it took six months to nail down the code for such a large deployment. Only the two parties involved in the chat will be able to see the messages, so even if WhatsApp were asked to hand over the messages to law enforcement (or the NSA), they won't be able to. Via Source
  13. This sure took a while, but Facebook is now officially the owner of WhatsApp. The social network agreed to buy the mobile messaging service on February 20, shocking the tech world by offering $19 billion for that privilege. All the regulatory hurdles have now been cleared, so WhatsApp is finally part of Facebook. US regulators moved pretty fast, approving the deal back in April. However, the European Commission only announced its positive vote on the matter last Friday. That was apparently the last approval Facebook needed, as the deal has now closed. As stated when the acquisition was announced, WhatsApp will continue to operate independently of the Facebook mothership, and the company has promised not to introduce ads into the conversations of its users.

  14. The Economic Times revealed on Friday that Google is planning to launch a dedicated chat app of its own in the near future. According to the report, Google’s new app will be entirely separate from Hangouts. Unlike most of the company’s other products, it won’t even require a Google login. It’s going to be entirely free to use and is expected to launch in India “and other emerging markets” in 2015. Those emerging markets are becoming increasingly important to Google — earlier this year, Google unveiled Android One, an attempt to capitalize on the untapped consumer base in India. Google senior VP Sundar Pichai has stated in the past that Google would be looking to launch more products in India in the future as well, adding credence to the report. There is a chance that this is a response to the loss of WhatsApp at the beginning of the year. Facebook ended up outbidding Google to the tune of $16 billion for the popular messaging platform, leaving Google in the same position it has been in for years: unable to infiltrate the social networking scene. “Google would agree that it missed social and missed social on mobile. But then Facebook had to buy WhatsApp and Instagram for the same reason,” Benedict Evans told The Economic Times. If the app is a success, there’s no reason to doubt it will make its way West. Google+ might have been a misfire, but this new app could give Google a fighting chance at staying relevant in a very crowded field. Source
  15. Facebook now appears to have approval from both the U.S. regulators (which happened months ago back in April of this year) and the European Union for the acquisition proposal of WhatsApp, the insanely popular messaging app for Android, iOS, blackberry, Nokia and Windows devices. With such a broad reach to tons of different platforms, it’s no wonder that Facebook has been interested in picking up Whatsapp as it could help them more fiercely compete in the mobile messaging space. Facebook already has their own messaging service available with “messenger” which just recently was split off from the Facebook app, and if all goes smoothly and the deal goes through, Facebook could be looking to integrate Whatsapp services and users with those of messenger and possibly roll everything into one application, which would seem like the logical choice. According to the unnamed sources who are familiar with the matter, Facebook will win “unconditional clearance” for the EU approval of the $19 billion deal, although so far the announcement of the results have not been made public by the EU themselves. Whatsapp is said to have a reach that spans over 600 million monthly active users as of August of this year, while Facebook Messenger according to Mark Zuckerberg has 200 million monthly active users as of April of this year, although there is likely some number of users here that can be accounted for probably dipping a toe in both pools, so that number could be a bit lower. Even still, with nearly 800 million MAU’s users combined and the possibility of free voice calls being added by Whatsapp to their own messaging service later on in the year if all goes according to plan for them, Facebook could stand to be a dominating competitor in this space. Now that Hangouts has Google Voice integrated with it Hangouts is technically in the same league, although it’s also likely that they have less MAU’s than a combined Facebook and Whatsapp would. With data plans on the rise and more and more apps giving users the option to use web connected messaging apps, there is less and less of a reason to have a wireless plan with large amounts of minutes or even unlimited messaging, although many of today’s plans have unlimited messaging and data bundled together as a package feature. Analysts apparently think that the deal now that it’s approved by the EU, network operators in the region are likely to take hits, although Facebook has convinced the regulators that the deal would have no anti-competitive effects according to the source, and merged Whatsapp/Facebook wouldn’t be the first messaging service to offer free unlimited messages and voice calls to other users.

  17. Yahoo is one of the many technology companies demanding reforms on US surveillance laws, and now says it's taken additional security measures to protect data it handles. Today the company announced that it's been encrypting traffic from its data centers since the beginning of this week, and plans to add encryption to additional services like Yahoo Messenger. That's on top of existing measures that let web users access secured versions of its various properties like Yahoo News, Sports, and Finance. "Hundreds of Yahoos have been working around the clock over the last several months to provide a more secure experience for our users and we want to do even more moving forward," wrote Alex Stamos, Yahoo's chief information security officer in a blog post today. "Our goal is to encrypt our entire platform for all users at all time, by default." In a meeting with reporters today, Stamos — who joined Yahoo three weeks ago — did not specifically call out the National Security Agency by name, but made it clear that revelations about NSA spying led directly to Yahoo's move toward more encryption. "The impetus for the huge push is obviously government revelations," Stamos told reporters. "The side effect is that the protections we're putting in place protect in a lot of different scenarios." Yahoo was one of eight companies including Google, Facebook, Apple, and others that called on the US government for reforms to the NSA in December. That request came amid heightened interest in revelations of NSA surveillance programs on US citizens. Google, for its part, began encrypting Gmail just last month, citing the need keep others from being able to "listen in on your messages." Encrypting everything makes that scenario more difficult, though Stamos warned that the system is not foolproof. "It's true that if there's any individual that's being targeted by a top-tier nation state, they're probably going to find a way. But that's very different from being able to keep track of the email and browsing habits of millions of people at the same time," Stamos said. "Anything we can do to protect users from non-targeted, widespread surveillance is our duty, and that's why we're trying to do." Casey Newton contributed to this report. Source
  18. Those of you using the Facebook Messenger on Windows probably got the same message as myself this morning. According to the notification, the Messenger will stop working on Monday, March 3. There is no explanation why Facebook decided to kill its standalone messenger app, but it isn’t unexpected. The Facebook Messenger installer for Windows has disappeared completely from Facebook’s website a while ago. Even its Help articles on the website were hard to find, so it was clear back then Facebook will be dropping support for the tool in the future. Well, it is time. The app will stop working on March 3. The help section is available now and explains how to uninstall the Messenger off your PC. As a user who really got used to the app, I am quite disappointed. I guess my only option now is to rely on the dedicated Metro/Modern Facebook app. Bugger! Source
  19. The mobile messaging world is a very competitive market right now. There are the proprietary options like iMessage, as well as the cross-platform options like Facebook, WhatsApp, Hangouts, BlackBerry Messenger, Snapchat, Skype, Line, WeChat, and a ton of others. Everyone wants to be the king, but of course there can only be one. A new survey is claiming that WhatsApp may be the new market leader. The survey is in no way a definitive set of data. First off, On Device surveyed just 3,759 Android and iOS smartphone owners across US, Brazil, South Africa, Indonesia, and China, meaning no Windows Phone users, and certainly missing quite a lot of regions including the entire European continent. Additionally, the question that was used to determine which app was in the lead was, "Which social messaging app do you use at least once a week?" This obviously doesn't take into account frequency of use or number of messages processed. 44% of respondents said they used WhatsApp at least once per week compared to 35% who used Facebook and 28% who used WeChat, which has a very big user base in China. BlackBerry Messenger gathered 17% of users built mostly on larger usage in Indonesia and South Africa. Social messaging is by far the dominant way of communication these days with 63% respondents who used social messaging service saying they used it least 10 times a day. Source
  20. ManyCam Pro Eng + Crack For anyone who uses several instant messenger programs to communicate with friends, using a webcam while chatting over the Internet on multiple apps at the same time can be a hassle. However, with a tool like Manycam you can easily solve that problem. This software solution helps you use the webcam on several chatting tools at the same time and, more importantly, it also enables you to add some shiny effects to the image you're streaming over the Internet. Manycam has a rather nice looking interface and thanks to the well-thought layout, it can be easily used by beginners and professional users alike. The application has tons of effects, regardless if we're talking about objects you can place over the image, backgrounds, face accessories, date and time or drawings. A great feature of Manycam we discovered during our tests was its ability to help users personalize the camera image by drawing directly onto it. In order to customize the software's settings, you can individually configure the audio and video source options. Another nice addition to the functions list is the support for playlists that you can create by adding videos that can be broadcast instead of a live feed from the webcam. In just a few words, Manycam can work with basically every tool that supports a webcam, no matter if we're thinking about Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Skype, Paltalk, Camfrog, AIM and many other IM apps.
