Don’t want people to see when you’re connected to Facebook Messenger? No problem! I’m going to show you how to hide your Facebook Messenger status in just two easy steps.
Ok, notice that I said that this is a two-step process. That’s because if you don’t want to show your active status on Facebook Messenger, you will need to disable chat on Facebook as well.
Step 1: Hiding your active status on Facebook Messenger itself
- Tap your photo in the upper right to go to Messenger settings.
- Tap Active Status.
- Toggle Availability Off.
Note that this is a two-way configuration. If you turn off your Availability, you won’t be able to see the Availability status of anyone else.
Step 2: Disabling chat on Facebook
- Tap on the three line hamburger menu to go to Settings & Privacy.
- Tap Settings.
- Scroll down and tap on Active Status.
- Toggle your status to inactive.
