How to Appear Offline on Facebook Messenger


Hi. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’m going
to talk through how to appear offline in Facebook Messenger. Facebook Messenger is a great way to stay
in touch with friends and family. And while it’s great that the chat application
makes it easy to see who’s actively using Facebook and available to chat, that can often
serve as an invitation for people just looking to waste away time to pull you into a meaningless
discusion. Whether you actually have things to do and
don’t want to be bothered, or you just want to be left alone to have some time to yourself,
you can set yourself to appear offline in Facebook Messenger. However, be aware that while you will appear
as offline, you also won’t be able to see who is online and active. You will still be able to see new messages
you receive, and respond to them as you want. This video will walk you through how to appear
offline in Facebook Messenger through both the Messenger mobile app, and the Messenger.com
website. And now, let’s talk through how to appear
offline in Facebook Messenger using the Facebook mobile app for iPhone, iPad, Android, Microsoft,
and Amazon mobile devices. Step 1. Launch the Facebook Messenger app on your
mobile device. You’ll land on your Facebook Messenger home
screen. Step 2. Tap your profile image that appears in the
upper left corner of the screen. The Me screen appears. Step 3. Tap “Availability” in the list of options
that appear on the screen. The Availability screen appears. Step 4. Tap the toggle to the right of Availability
to turn it off. The toggle will be turned off when the circle
is on the left side of the toggle, and the toggle is no longer shaded green. A Turn Off Availability dialog box appears
on the screen. Step 5. Tap the blue “Turn Off” button in the dialog
box. The dialog box disappears, and you’re returned
to the Availability screen, where Availability is turned off. You will now appear offline for anyone looking
for you in Facebook Messenger. You can set your status back to active at
any time by returning to this section and setting the Availability toggle back to on. And now, let’s talk through how to appear
offline in Facebook Messenger using Messenger.com. Step 1. Open your Web browser, navigate to Messenger.com,
and then log into your Messenger account if prompted. You’ll arrive at your Facebook Messenger home
screen. Step 2. Click the “Settings” icon in the upper left
corner of the screen. The Settings icon looks like a blue gear. A drop-down menu appears. Step 3. Click “Settings” in the drop-down menu. The Settings window opens in the center of
your screen. Step 4. If you hold your cursor over the toggle that
appears on the right side of the Account section, Go Offline will appear in the alternative
text box that pops up. Click the toggle to move the circle to the
left side of the toggle, and remove the green shading from the toggle’s background. You will now appear offline for anyone looking
for you in Facebook Messenger. You can set yourself back to active at any
time by returning to the Settings window and turning this toggle back on. Congratulations! You now know how to appear offline in Facebook
