The Facebook Messenger app is a new way to chat and send direct messages to our Facebook contacts through our mobile. It's a separate app to the Facebook network, and works independently. The main problem with this app, however, is that it is possible to sign out to stop receiving messages on our mobile or to log in with another account. However a simple trick will allow you to do so even if the app does not have an option for it. Want to know how? In this article we explain how to log out of Facebook Messenger on Android and iPhone.

Steps to follow:
1

To log out of Facebook Messenger on Android, start by going to Settings on your Android Phone, the icon with the cog.

Now select 'Clear Data'. This option will not delete your contacts or your previous conversations, it will simply delete the Facebook Messenger cache, thus eliminating direct access to your account and allowing you to close the application. This can let you sign in with another Facebook account or just stop receiving messages on your mobile for a while.
