How to hide Facebook Message Seen Receipt


These days I have been lot of busy updating website and posting articles on my blog and due to such constraints it’s not possible to be active on Facebook all the time. My usual habit is to open Facebook account and then I leave it open and start doing some other work on the Internet and most of the time goes into updating and promoting blog and many times it happens that I read messages my friends send me on Facebook chat box but forget replying them if it is not important or if I am too busy and my friends keep complaining that I read their messages but don’t reply.

So the most obvious reason was to either reply to every one of them or to completely close Facebook and concentrate on my work but both of them weren’t feasible because most of my Internet accounts had been linked to Facebook so I had to keep it open in order to not keep entering username and password on each Internet account. Due to this I had to find something that might block the Facebook Message seen receipt like the one shown below.


So I searched on the Internet and found a solution which I thought I should share with you in order if you too want to hide Facebook message seen receipts. In below steps I’ll show you how to…

Is it possible to block Facebook Message Seen Receipts?

Yes! it is possible to hide Facebook Message Seen receipts but Facebook doesn’t provide an option to do it. In order to disable Facebook Message Seen receipts you need to be logged into Google’s Chrome browser and you need a Chrome extension called as Facebook Unseen.

Options available in Facebook Unseen

There are very limited but useful options available in the app. You can even hide Facebook Message Seen Receipt in your own chat box.


Now since the app is developed in spare time by a freelance developer it is possible you might not see much updates to this extension or might even experience some instability since it does not has some a rigid support and developed by an individual but right now the app works perfectly fine and does what is advertised compared to other extensions on the Chrome Store.
