How to Log Out of Facebook Messenger on your iPhone (iOS 8 Tip)

When Facebook Messenger was optimized to run smoothly on iOS 8, the option to log out was not readily available. This can be frustrating to those who either manage multiple Facebook accounts or to those who simply don’t want to chat as of the moment and turning off the notifications for the app is just not enough. Worry no more because it is still possible to log out from the application without having to uninstall and re-download the application but the process is tedious.

UPDATE: Facebook redesigned its UI. Click here to go to the new method of logging out from this app.

Here’s how:

1. Go to Settings

2. Tap Privacy and Terms.

Loading may take a while depending on your internet speed. You will be directed to a page that displays the Facebook Terms & Policies.

3. Tap on the menu bar on the top left corner to display the drop down menu.

4. Scroll down and look for “Log Out”. Tap on it.

Congrats you have finally logged out from the Facebook Messenger app. Sometimes you may need to refresh and close the app first then re-open before you are completely logged off.
