Vanish ModeIf you’re the type who’s always worried that someone else might read your chats, or maybe you just want to keep them secret for any reason, here’s some good news.

Messenger and Instagram will soon get a feature called Vanish Mode. With just a swipe of a button, messages sent will only stay on the screen until you turn it off, or until you switch to another app.

This feature will not only work in personal conversations but also in group chats. You’ll still be able to report conversations as they’ll remain in the system for up to 14 days.
