Facebook experimented with a new feature that probably NSA (USA) will not like it. The social network announced that it will favor the privacy of users. They will receive encrypted emails from Facebook, which are of a sensitive nature – such as password recovery. Within this new feature you can add OpenPGP public key, and get an encrypted version of the notifications received to safer messaging. Facebook’s new feature is activated gradually to consumers. When you get the function you will see “PGP Public Key was found in a section of your Facebook profile” in the About Me. Then you can share your OpenPGP encryption keys to enable encrypted communications. When the key is inserted to the profile will have an option below that reads: “Use this public key to encrypt the notification letters that Facebook will send you.” If you check the box, the feature will be enabled. Social networking will sign outgoing message with a private key – something that will “provide greater confidence” that the emails are genuine. This feature comes at a time when concerns about espionage and other unwanted intrusions are the number one topic, and is a welcome change for those who want to secure their personal data. For those interested in tapping it represents yet another obstacle to overcome.
