Imo, a video and messaging tool, has rolled out a unique feature, ‘Family Guard’, to strengthen its security and privacy protection system.

The feature allows imo users to protect their close ones from security risks as well as be protected by their close ones from threats.

Once the guarded imo account encounters unusual activities, the guardian user will receive safety alerts. This way, the guardian can help protect the account owner from unexpected attempts.

It is also mentionable that imo is the first instant communication platform to launch this kind of security feature in Bangladesh, indicating that imo puts security in the highest regard.

Besides, taking users’ safety requirements to the next level, soon imo will launch another feature, ‘Disappearing Message’, to allow users to automatically delete private messages with others on the platform after a specific duration which they can set in advance.

This feature applies to specific chats, as well as new chats with all new friends or all friends.

Imo launched this feature to provide comprehensive privacy protection to users so that private messages cannot be leveraged in a negative way.
