And someone from that list might also send you a message on the Messenger app, and you might think- how to remove someone from messenger?
Facebook did an interface update in November 2020, so old ways do not work anymore.
Thanks to my subscribers’ comments (Yolanda Sommers and Lisa), I rewrote this page in December 2020.
Now we have an up-to-date guide and screenshots with the new interface.
How To Remove Someone From Messenger
On Facebook Messenger, we still come across at least one contact who is very irritating, and we want to delete them, right? Or it might also be possible for you to receive a messenger message from someone on Facebook who is not on your friend list.
So here are all the possible answers to your question – how to remove someone from messenger?
The first option is to block the person on the Messenger App.
On Facebook Messenger, there are two ways to block someone:
1 Way to block the messenger from someone:
It would be the easiest way to exclude anyone from messenger blocking. Follow these steps to block a person:
- Open Messenger and tap on the “People” icon in the bottom left corner of the screen.
- Tap on the contact list icon in the top right corner ( 2nd icon from the right).
- Step 1 and 2 Find the person you want to block and tap the “Info” icon next to him. The icon looks like (i).
- Step 3 Tap the big blue “MESSAGE” button to open a chat with someone you want to remove.
- Step 4 Tap on the” Info” icon in the top right corner of the screen. The icon looks like (i).
- Step 5 On the new screen, scroll to the bottom until you see the “Block” option. Tap on it.
- Step 6 Tap on the icon next to “Block on Messenger” Tap on the icon next to “Block on Facebook” if you want to remove a person from your Facebook completely.
- Step 7 and 8 If you chose the “Block on Facebook” option, you will be redirected to the Facebook page in a browser. Tap the “Block” button here too.
- Step 9 Those were all steps to block or remove a person from your Facebook messenger. The method is live and I just tested it on 8 December 2020.
Way 2 to remove a person from the Facebook messenger.
If somehow the previous way didn’t work for you, there is another place to block someone on Facebook messenger:
- Open chat with someone you want to block
- Tap the small “(i)” icon in the top right corner
- Scroll at the very bottom and there would be the “Block” button.
- Use that “Block” button to block a person. You would have 2 options – to block only on messenger or on Facebook too.
