VKontakte introduces end-to-end encryption for voice and video calls

VKontakte managing director Andrei Rogozov commented on the situation with IP address locks by Roskomnadzor. “We represent the future of the Internet as a safe platform, where everyone can be assured of the safety of their data, ” says a letter received . According to Rogozov, one of the main technologies that guarantees data security is end-to-end encryption.

“We feel responsible for the communication of tens of millions of people and contribute to the development of safe communication. In the near future we will launch voice and video calls with end-to-end encryption. This means that no one, except you and your interlocutor, will ever be able to get the content of the conversation, “said the managing director of VKontakte.

Rogozov explained that the transfer of any keys and access to information outside the device in this case is impossible by definition. “This is how most of the leading messaging services in the world work. End encryption allows you to ensure confidentiality of calls and protection from access to them by a third party, “the top manager of VKontakte added.

He recalled the situation when on the eve of one of the IP addresses of the social network was blocked, as a result of which some of the users of VKontakte temporarily lost access to the service. “Also, because of the unstable work after the RCN blocking, we had to disable the integration of the ReCaptcha service, which VKontakte uses to combat spam, and support AMP technology that allows instant opening of external pages in our mobile applications,” Andrei Rogozov added.
