Facebook is placing privacy and secrecy ahead of accountability، according to a children's charity boss، as the Daily Mail said.

Peter Wanless، chief executive of the NSPCC said end-to-end encryption on Facebook's Messenger service is a 'risk and a backward step' in children's online safety.

The social media giant pledged to begin a 'new chapter' in its history as it revealed plans to be more privacy-focused at its annual developer conference in April.
Messenger، the app taking the lead in Facebook's new privacy-focused approach، has been made end-to-end encrypted by default for the first time، fully securing messages sent on the service.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph، Mr Wanless said: 'It places privacy and secrecy ahead of accountability and transparency.

'It's really disappointing that reaction to the NSPCC's call for a safer internet is to make it more secret and more dangerous.

'What I would say to Mark Zuckerberg is: you have a duty of care and a responsibility to the people who are using your services، very many of whom are children and young people.'
