What is Vanish Mode? How Does It Work?
Facebook Vanish Mode is a feature that lets users send messages that will erase automatically once it has been read by the recipient. The feature permits users to own secret conversations as the message gets self-deleted after the other user has read the messages. Vanish mode was released on the Facebook social media app back in September and now has been introduced to the Instagram app as well.
However, in the vanish mode, users are allowed to select the exact time for how long do they want the reader to have the message in their chatbox. This guarantees that the message will not stay longer than the specified time and the sender of the message shall get to decide the time securing secrecy. A recipient can discern for how much time the message will be accessible by observing a timer or a clock ticking at a corner of the message. The vanishing messages were also included on Instagram where users could decide to send in messages only for a certain time.
