You will soon be able to use Messenger without a Facebook account

Facebook has recently announced that you will soon be able to sign up and use its own messaging app, Messenger, without a Facebook account.

Once the update becomes available, the Messenger’s welcome screen will now include an option that says “Not on Facebook?” From there, the user can just sign up with his/her name, phone number and photo.


Users who sign up this way will still be able to enjoy all of Messenger’s features like photos, videos, group chats, voice and video calling, stickers and more.

The Messenger’s new feature is currently being rolled out in Canada, United States, Peru and Venezuela, and will soon be available in other countries.

    I think there’s a challenge/flaw with this one. What if a prepaid number was used to enroll to the FB’s Messenger feature/app? What if he/she floods or spams FB users with it and eventually disposed that sim card for it to be unable to be tracked. What if again, if the mobile phone was stolen with a prepaid sim card? he/she will gain access to the messages? What if again, if all of the possible worst scenarios will happen and the original user no longer uses/have that mobile number? Philippine Telco companies tends to recycle the mobile numbers that they distribute. What if a 1 mobile number/service provider will be provided to each individual or at least register all sim cards/mobile number for every individual?
