How to Turn Off Chats on Facebook

Click the Gear icon at the lower right corner of your screen, on the chat box. This will open the Chat Settings menu. Select “Turn off chat.” A menu of various chat settings options to choose from will open, just click on the option you prefer.

Do you ever need some quiet time to yourself, but still want to use Facebook? Sometimes we all need to go into “silent mode” and hide our online status. Luckily, it’s a simple process to turn off your online status on both Facebook and Messenger.

First, make sure both your Facebook and Messenger apps are updated. Then, in the Facebook app, click the three-dot icon, scroll down to “Settings and Privacy,” click “Settings,” and then click “Audience and Visibility.” At the bottom, you’ll see an “Active Status” option. Turn it off so that your friends and contacts won’t see when you are active or recently active.

In the Messenger app, click your profile icon, scroll down to “Active Status,” and turn it off. From then on, no one will be able to see when you are active in either app.

It’s that simple! No more interruptions from chats while you’re trying to take a break. If you have any issues, don’t hesitate to ask for help.
