Splitting your bottomless brunch bill will soon be made easier with the introduction of person-to-person payments through Facebook Messenger in the UK. This feature was first launched in the USA earlier this year and was later enhanced by allowing payments to be made in a group chat. The service is free to use and does not require a password, however it does ask a couple of security questions before you can proceed with the payment. Furthermore, the payments are fully secure, protected and private.
