    I’ve been hacked. If I delete messenger will it eliminate all friends I had contact with? They have texted me all day.

  • I HATE messenger because it is hard to delete messages!

    By betwil62
    I Hate Messenger because it is hard to delete messages, is prone to being hacked, and difficult to impossible to complain about. If you’re switching messages from Facebook to Messenger, I may give up both Facebook and Nessenger!

  • Bummed out with Messenger

    By Want what I want
    I liked to use messenger to stay in contact with my out of town relatives and friends, even the ones down the block! I just don’t feel that I should risk the chance of all of my friends and contacts to be duped and or have them get hacked again! I don’t know how many times its happened but it has been very frustrating!! Even with the privacy level, THERE ARE PEOPLE ON MY MESSENGER THAT I DON’T KNOW AND/OR NEVER KNEW. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEY GOT ON MY LIST BECAUSE I NEVER RECEIVED A FRIEND REQUEST OR I WOULD HAVE DELETED OR DENIED THEM RIGHT THERE BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW THEM!!!! The next thing is that Messenger has CHANGED ITS SCOPE so much that it doesn’t feel like it had in the past! Lots less community/village type focus!!!! NOW, it’s what can we get away with charging you for???? Honestly, find your scope and go with it! I was not able shut my green dot off day, nor night. The call quality needs to be improved. There was more room for ‘suggested’ people I might know (THAT MAY HAVE BEEN HACKED FROM OTHER PEOPLES FRIEND LISTS BY YOUR OWN TEAM) then the messages that I would get or the REAL friend requests that I may have received!!!! Please let me know when this app is more secure!! Cause WHY would I want to put any FINANCIAL INFORMATION ON A SITE THAT CANT BE TRUSTED TO KEEP MY INFORMATION and/or CONTACTS SECURE???!!!

    Love the app. I always have messages and try to check the app at least three or four times a day.
  • I deleted Messenger

    By zxcouhfs
    I deleted messenger because I did not like all the nonsense I was being forwarded to me. I would rather not get notices from Facebook I have messages waiting for me. I’d rather those people who messaged me get advised that I do not have messenger

  • read receipts

    By liuhaihai
    the new update no longer has read receipts on for large group chats. please bring this back. for smaller group chats, you can still see what members have read the messages so why isn’t it the same for larger group chats?

  • Over it FB

    By over it fb
    I always wondered why it was necessary to have a separate app to send a message through FB. Now that I am getting all these adds I see it’s money. FB isn’t what it use to be.

    It’s annoying. It’s broken and inconsistent.
  • Need Night view mode!

    By Tameem Samdanee
    1. Seriously! Is it too much to ask for fb messenger to have night view mode in almost 2019! 2. There should be an option to view links only, images, files only etc in a conversation. 3. Search option in a conversation should be improved. So many other messengers are doing it so well. 4. Option to select and delete individual texts and images in a conversation. .. Please add these aforementioned features in fb for awesome messaging experience.
  • Difficult to tell location of new messages

    By calsunman
    3 new message notifications.. where?
  • More customization please

    By HeyTressy
    It would be great if there were more chat colors to choose from, and if you could add a picture as a background. Also, better if we can unsend the sent messages (like in IG). Thanks
  • App problem

    So I’ve updated this app several times and I have a iPhone 6 however when I go into the option of changing the chat color it does not give me that color changing option like the iPhone 7 does and it’s really irritating!
  • I loathe this app

    By Boole2
    I do not like single function proprietary apps and avoid them whenever possible, and this is the worst of them all. Why can’t I send messages from within my internet browser like I do on my desktop PC? Facebook forces me to use this app, which has no redeeming features.
  • No to your enhancements

    By Desertbandit
    You propose quite a number of changes to messenger and not all of these I am interested in and I don’t think that a number of them should be there so I want to be able to disable them or otherwise I’ll be more interested in another chat program because basically messenger is there to be a chat program
  • Another update?

    By Cacumi
    Why for God sake don' t stop to update this app?. It's to hard to make a reliable, lite and quick app in a lifetime? We don't need all the bell and whistles, only need this app to work easy, with no crash and using less system resources. It's too difficult to understand this??
  • Not for me, sorry

    By mwilk
    I installed Messenger and it became a such a problem to manage that I unloaded it right away...and even **THAT** became a nightmare. Sorry, I’m on YouTube, and a tiny bit of Twitter and I’m going to stick with plain old email 🤷‍♂️

    It has gotten better. Pleased with it
  • Will not open!! 🤬

    By punkedbythisapp
    I reinstalled the app to see if it would help to no avail. When I click on the app it just goes to a white screen with no options and no way out. It’s been this way for 3 days. I hate using this app but am forced to to get my messages. I wish FB would get rid of it because I absolutely hate it. I just want my messages!!!!!
  • Delete IM contacts

    By Jumphi4joy
    I want to permanently delete (NOT just block) contacts on IM. I think that when a friend gets hacked & I end up being part of that, then contacts of people that I don’t know end up in my IM contacts. I want them gone! Instagram & the others allow for this. FB get up to speed!!!!
  • Lock code for the app

    By thr secret men
    We do need a lock code for the app . In case someone borrow the phone . Secondly need a new way to delete messages more effectively. Specialis the missed call . Thanks for concern. Best regard.
  • Ui update

  • Most recent update is bugged

    By Zegator
    After updating it overnight to its newest update, the app crashes every time I try to open up any conversation I have with anyone. I can’t even open any conversation whatsoever, not even for a second. And I’ve been trying many many times already. Anytime I press anything actually after opening the app, it crashes; so I can’t watch stories, upload to my story, start a new convo, open a convo, etc. Please update and fix this, as I use this to contact certain groups and individuals. Will update my review once the app is actually usable again. Update: it no longer crashes.

  • Don’t love it, don’t hate it

    By anon0913
    TBH, I wouldn’t use FB messenger if it wasn’t the preferred method of communication for some people I know, so I don’t use it heavily. It’s just too clunky to have so many messengers. One of my biggest critiques of the app is the lack of options regarding automatically deleting old messages and attachments, akin to what’s offered in iMessage. The second is the lack of option to purge the cache to free up storage space without deleting and reinstalling the app.
