How To Stop Showing Your Active Status On Facebook Messenger

The conventional social network, Facebook, may not necessarily make you want to interact with others every time you log on. You do have the choice to check Facebook secretly if you don’t feel like talking to your pals or don’t have the time or energy to do so.
You can accomplish this by turning off your “Active Status” on the Facebook website or through the Facebook mobile app. The Facebook Messenger app has a similar global setting that enables you to check your most recent messages without having friends compete for your attention. To find out how to accomplish it, continue reading.
