Hide read receipt on Facebook Messenger

Ever feel annoyed of receiving back to back text messages? And once you ignored them - you're doomed. Another series of complaining messages hit your phone and you wondered if there was any way to hide your read receipt.

First thing first, how these receipts work?

How to hide read receipt on Messenger:

However, there's no direct way to turn off read receipts in Messenger, like you can in iMessage or WhatsApp, still there are some methods to hide it.

  • Read messages through notifications

How to Turn on Messenger notifications?

On Android, tap on user icon at the top right of the screen, go to notifications and turn it on.

On iOS, you'll want to have the notification alert style set to either Banners or Alerts (Settings > Messenger > Notifications) when your phone's unlocked.

Furthermore, if you want to see your notifications on your lock screen, tap on "Show on Lock Screen".

Now, you can read all your messages from notifications and it will never let them know

  •  Go into airplane mode

Going into airplane mode will prevent your read receipt from activating.

How to do this?

Simple, just turn on airplane mode, open Messenger, read all received messages, then leave the app (to quit Messenger, launch the multitasker and boot it) before switching airplane mode off.

Remember, if you don't quit Messenger, the next time you open the app and it reconnects to Facebook's servers, it'll sync up all your offline activity and your friends will know you read their messages.

  • Use a Chrome extension

Hiding your read receipts on the desktop isn't as easy as it is on mobile, and it majorly depends on which Chrome extension and version you are using.

If you're using "Facebook Chat Privacy", it will block the "seen" and "typing" receipts, but it only disabled the latter.

And if you're using "Unseen", it, however, works almost fine and blocks the "seen" and "typing" receipts, but not the "delivery receipts".

There are plenty of other Chrome extensions available that claim to block read receipts, but the only way to really know if they work or not is to try them for yourself.

  • Mark as Unread
If your only purpose is to hide your seen then this method will work well for you. Open the text, read it and then mark it as unread.

Try all these methods for yourself and happy hiding your receipts!
