Snapshot shock: Restaurant Stuns Diner with $60,000 Bill After Viral Food Photo Sparks Unwanted Orders

After sharing a photo of herself dining, a Chinese woman faced a $60,000 bill from the restaurant. Sharing moments on social media is common, but trouble arose when a QR code in the picture allowed others to place unauthorized orders in her name, resulting in a hefty bill with items she didn’t order.

Despite swiftly removing the image, it was too late; a user had downloaded it and continued placing orders. Upon discovering the situation, the restaurant halted new orders in her name, though existing ones couldn’t be cancelled.

In a gracious move, the restaurant chose not to compel the woman to settle the bill, recognizing her unintended mistake.

Meta Announces End-To-End Encryption For Personal Conversations On Facebook and Messenger

In another development, Meta Platforms announced the initiation of end-to-end encryption for all personal conversations and calls across Messenger and Facebook.

This encryption feature is being made immediately accessible, though it might take some time for all Messenger accounts to receive the default implementation of end-to-end encryption, according to the social media giant.

Previously, Messenger allowed users to manually activate end-to-end encryption, ensuring that messages were only readable by the sender and intended recipients. With this update, messages will now automatically undergo encryption by default, Meta confirmed.

While Meta’s WhatsApp already employs message encryption, the company emphasizes that encryption plays a crucial role in safeguarding users against cyber threats such as hackers, fraud, and criminal activities.

The implementation of end-to-end encryption has been a subject of debate between corporations and governments.

In September, the British government cautioned Meta against introducing encryption on Instagram and Facebook Messenger without incorporating safety measures to protect children from potential risks of sexual abuse.
