Hackers

How many times have I gotten messages or people I’m already Friends with trying to friend me again from hackers???
Pretty sure that’s how my whole phone was hacked! - and money almost stolen! Contacts erased- crazy stuff going on the last few years! And it’s only getting worse and more frequent!!
Can you please get control of the hackers. I use this app to keep in contact with family and friends that live far away and also my health and wellness clients. It would be nice to not have to worry about being hacked all the time. It was bad enough when there were just landlines- yes, I’m that old, and proud of it! The DO NOT CALL LIST really worked and couldn’t steal your info unless you actually told it to them on a call. This is getting, well, not getting, but IS RIDICULOUS. How can almost everyone I know have been hacked?? And the hacker messages from friends on messenger trying to scam you—- I GOT A MESSAGE THE OTHER DAY FROM SOMEONE THAT IS DEAD!!!
THESE PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY AREN'T TOO SMART, but SMART ENOUGH TO SIT AROUND ALL DAY, play on a computer,AND STEAL FROM PEOPLE WORKING HARD FOR THEIR MONEY and WORKING HARD to survive in this world!!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO STOP THIS?

Not private at all

Recently had a private conversation that turned out not to be private. Two of my friends in real life had seen parts of that particular chat and even quoted something i had said to the person i was chatting with. That person does not even know the two personal friends that have seen that chat. I have no trust in this app and this is just an expansion of Facebook. Therefore i have no trust that my Facebook page is private even with all the settings they force you to set with each and every upgrade. If you think messenger is private, then you are a fool to believe anything they tell you. They all about making money on your information. Beware if you say something private and others see it. You cannot control that. Nov. 23 update. Proof its not private. Another freaky happening just now. I sent yesterday my phone number and mailing address through text from my phone carrier messaging. 20 minutes later he texted me back and thanked me for the contact information and said he got it in messenger and not in text as i had sent it. To me this shows that whatever i do on my phone via texting, is being spied on from facebook. This should be 100% illegal and i may look into legal action over this. Facebook swears they value our privacy yet they snoop into my phone activity and use their own platform to relay messages sent through different sources. Now they have important private information on me that i never gave them permission to do.

App going downhill fast.

Ever since the last update the calls have been messing up bad when I try to call someone it says I’m calling myself and keeps ringing and ringing for so long I have to turn my phone off completely to get it to stop on top of that messenger it self as been messing up my data it will turn my data off out of nowhere or it won’t even recognize I have data on at all it just keeps saying “ no Internet connection” when I have full bars of LTE and even more on that note calls will randomly end or it will only end on me or said persons end but never showed on the other persons end and the whole time you think you’re on call you really not video length is way too short my friends can’t even send me videos without having to crop them into separate parts and same for me I keep getting kicked out of messenger almost on a daily basis nowadays and sometimes it keeps saying that my information is wrong when I never change my login information and don’t get me started on how many times it says “unable to login” over and over again on a daily basis and on top of the fact and stuff it has very bad security measures if you get hacked or so on. All the recent updates for a while On this app have just been making this app worse and worse and it has so many bugs and glitches it’s not even funny this app has gone to complete garbage.
