How to Ignore Messages on Facebook and Facebook Messenger

You’ll learn how to ignore messages from someone on Facebook and Facebook Messenger in this post.

I am using a PC, Android, and iPhone in this case. Let’s begin.

PC

Log in to Facebook. Click on the contact you want on the right sidebar.

Click on the contact’s name in the chat, and you’ll see Ignore messages. Click on it.

In the popup, click Ignore Messages.

That’s all.

Here’s an alternative method (you can follow these steps for messenger.com too, leave out the first step):

In the left-hand sidebar of Facebook, click Messenger.

Hit the chat you prefer. Click Privacy & Support in the right sidebar.

Select Ignore Messages. Click Ignore Messages on the popup.

To undo the ignore, follow these steps:

On Facebook, click Messenger in the left sidebar.

On the left-hand sidebar top, click three horizontal dots.

Would you please click on Message Requests located between Active Contacts and Archived Chats?

On the left sidebar, click See Spam. Open the chat and send a message.

Note: You can read the messages of the ignored conversation from here, but they won’t be notified until you respond.

Follow these steps if you’re using the Messenger app on a PC:

Just right-click the conversation you want. Select Ignore Messages.

Follow these steps to undo this ignore:

Find the chat and open it. Please send a message.

That’s all.

Android

Open the Facebook Messenger app. Long press the chat you want.

Select Ignore messages. In the popup, tap Ignore.

That’s all. 

From now on, you won’t receive any notifications about messages from that chat, and they’ll be moved to Spam. The sender won’t be notified about it.

You can undo this ignore by following these steps:

Launch the Facebook Messenger app. Hit your profile picture in the top left.

Between Switch Account and Archived Chats, tap Message Requests.

Would you please go to Spam?

Find and tap the chat you want. Please send a message.

That’s it.

Note: You can read the messages of the ignored chat from here, but they won’t be notified until you respond.

iPhone

Open the Facebook Messenger app.

Slide the chat you want to the left. Select More.

Hit Ignore, which is between Mute and Delete.

In the popup, tap Ignore.

That’s all. 

From now on, you won’t receive any notifications about messages from that chat, and they’ll be moved to Spam. The sender won’t be notified about it.

You can undo this ignore by following these steps:

Launch the Facebook Messenger app. Hit your profile picture in the top left.

Between Active Status and Archived Chats, tap Message Requests.

Would you mind going to Spam?
