How to log out of Facebook Messenger

Facebook app

Logging out of Facebook Messenger on the Facebook app is relatively easy. However, there’s a bit of confusion surrounding it since the option to log out isn’t very visible. Here are the steps you need to follow:

First, open your Facebook app and go to your profile.

Next, tap on the three horizontal lines at the top right-hand corner of your screen.

Scroll down until you find “Settings & Privacy” and click on it.

Then, select “Settings.”

In this new menu page, scroll down until you reach “Security” and tap on it.

Under Security settings, select “Active Sessions.”

You’ll then see a list of all active sessions you have open across different devices – including Messenger. Tap on “Messenger” from that list.

Click “Log Out” to end all active sessions for Messenger.

Now that you’ve successfully logged out from all active sessions for Messenger through your Facebook app let’s move onto logging out via the actual messenger app!

Messenger app

The Messenger app is a standalone application developed by Facebook that allows users to communicate with each other. It has become one of the most popular messaging apps worldwide, boasting over 1 billion active users. While it offers many features such as sending text messages, photos, and videos, sometimes you may need to log out of your account for various reasons.

To begin logging out of your Messenger app on an Android device, first open the app and tap on your profile picture in the top-left corner. This will take you to the Settings menu where you can scroll down until you see “Log Out”. Once you click this button, confirm that you want to log out by tapping “Log Out” again.

On an iOS device, navigate to your profile icon in the top-left corner and scroll down until you find “Settings”. From here select “Legal & Policies” and then “Log Out”. Confirm that you want to log out when prompted.

It is important to note that logging out of Messenger will not delete or deactivate your account. If you wish to do so permanently, visit Facebook’s website via a web browser or desktop computer for further instructions.

Facebook website

Facebook website is another platform where you can access Facebook Messenger. Logging out of the Messenger on the web is similar to logging out on the app, but there are a few slight differences.

First, open your preferred browser and navigate to Once you’re logged in, click on the little arrow located at the top right corner of your screen. A drop-down menu will appear with several options.

Next, find “Settings & Privacy” and click on it. Another menu will pop up with additional options – select “Settings.” From here, look for “Security and Login” and give it a single click.

Under this section, scroll down until you see “Where You’re Logged In.” Clicking this option will reveal all active sessions that are currently being used by your account including Messenger sessions.

Locate the session labeled as “Messenger” or “Facebook Messenger” – then press “Log Out” next to it to end your session. It’s important to note that if you have multiple devices signed in using one account (e.g., phone and laptop), they’ll each show up separately under these settings so make sure all relevant sessions are logged out properly!
