Popular cross-platform messaging services are gradually adding end-to-end encryption to their offerings as users seek out services that offer them better protection and privacy features. Line is pretty big in many parts of the world and it boasts hundreds of millions of users who will now be delighted to find out that their preferred instant messaging service now supports end-to-end encryption.

Line confirmed through a post on its official blog that end-to-end encryption has been turned on for all users by default. Rival services like WhatsApp and Viber have already turned on end-to-end encryption by default for all of their users.

This feature is available for all Line users which means that those who have been using the Hidden Chat feature will now have the same peace of mind and sense of security from a regular 1:1 chat on Line without having to create separate Hidden Chat rooms. As a result of end-to-end encryption going live by default, Line is no longer going to support the Hidden Chat feature.

If you are a Line user make sure you have updated to the latest version of the iOS and Android application so that you too can be secured by the default end-to-end encryption feature that’s now provided to all Line users.
