- Enable Siri Dictation in Facebook even if Siri is disabled in the Settings application
- Time stamp each individual Facebook message

- Send more than one photograph per message on Facebook
- Disable Facebook messenger reminders
- Enable the VOIP feature for both Facebook and Facebook Messenger

- Disable unseen Chat Heads from opening when you launch Facebook
- Enable or disable buttons in Facebook, such as like, comment, or tag

FBPrivacy will be receiving an update to version 0.4 soon that will add the feature to confirm if you are sure you want to send a message. You will be able to compose the message normally, and after tapping on the send button, a prompt will appear asking if you are sure you want to send the message – you can choose yes or no.
