Thus, this process of logging out is useful when you have done multiple logins from different devices in the past. As a result of this process, now your messenger will stay active only on one device of your choice. If you do not want to use Facebook messenger at all from any device, you can delete or uninstall Facebook messenger. 

  • No way is wrong.
  • When you are using different social media applications, you need to make sure that you are not wasting unnecessary time on them.
  • You can use digital controls and disable certain applications during work time.
  • Applications like messenger where you chat with friends can distract you while working or studying.
  • So, log out from it or uninstall it as required.
  • You can use it anytime, add anyone on messenger anytime, and have long conversations. Just make sure you do not waste your productive time on it.
