What is Revolut Messenger?
Revolut Messenger is an in-app messaging service that Revolut customers can use to send messages to each other. You can only send messages to other Revolut customers that are your trusted contacts.
Can Revolut read your messages?
Revolut will not be able to read your messages but will be able to see information relating to any payments you make or receive through Revolut.
Your Revolut messages are encrypted end-to-end. This means that Revolut will never be able to access any message that you send through Revolut Messenger.
While Revolut cannot access your messages, we will have some information about how you use Revolut Messenger, including:
- the time and date you send or receive a message;
- the identity of the other Revolut customer you are chatting with; and
- the time and date that you open, or re-open, an encrypted chat session.
Revolut can access information if you initiate a payment to, or receive a payment from, another Revolut customer through Revolut Messenger. For example, Revolut will have access to any information that is generated when you:
- request a payment from another Revolut customer through Revolut Messenger
- send a payment to another Revolut customer through Revolut Messenger
- accept, or decline, a payment request from another Revolut customer through Revolut Messenger
