Whether to use the app without the worry of someone chatting at the wrong time or simply to have even more privacy. You can check how to hide your status in the app below!

Online on Facebook Messenger

You can do this on any device, as Facebook Messenger's interface doesn't change much on Android, iPhone or even browser version. In this tutorial, we will use the version of the app on Android.

To get started, open the Facebook Messenger app on your smartphone (or web browser) and click your user photo in the top right of the screen.

This will take you to the general settings of your app profile. To proceed, click on the “Availability” option.

To hide that you are online in Facebook Messenger, just click the button that appears on this screen. As explained below the button, by doing this your contacts will not see you online, but you will not know if they are online in the app either.

When you click the button, Messenger will ask if you really want to do this, so just confirm by selecting the "Disable" option.

Okay, now your contacts won't be able to see when you're online or when you last used Facebook Messenger. Of course you can change this option at any time by going back to this menu and reactivating the feature.
