Messenger is an extremely useful application to keep in touch with all our friends of the social networks. With the passage of time and with options such as Messenger Lite it is really very simple to use it and above all light, effective and fast.

But maybe for one reason or another you don't want to keep using the app. One option is uninstall and forget that it exists. Another is to temporarily deactivate the account so that nobody sends us messages and we don't have to worry about them.

Precisely for this reason a little further below we will see a fairly simple tutorial so that you know how temporarily deactivate your Facebook Messenger account. This way you can reuse it whenever you want.

  • We will select from all the available options » Configuration «.
  • We go to a new page and here we have to choose from the left column «The your Facebook information «.
  • Then the option at the bottom of this new page " Deactivation and elimination «.
  • Choose the option » Deactivate account »And then click on« Continue with account deactivation ».

When deactivate your account, you must consider that no one else will be able to see your profile. Some of the actions you have done on Facebook will still be visible as comments and messages sent. However, no one will be able to search for you on the social network or access your profile.

If you want to reactivate your account, all you have to do is log in again and it will work as usual within seconds.

In the case of Messenger, you can continue to use it as if nothing had happened. You will have your profile picture and can send messages as usual. If you want to deactivate Messenger, follow the steps that we will leave you a little further below.
