Learn how to log out of your Facebook Messenger in your Phone. This trick can be used only in Android Devices.


Facebooking is something we can’t even think about not doing a day anymore. It has become a part of us.

The company has enabled its users to network even on the move, by providing two major mobile applications: The Facebook for Mobile App & The Messenger App.

The FB Mobile app helps you to easily go through your feeds, message other people and do almost every function you can do via a computer. But, Messenger is the application that is more widely used than the FB Mobile app since it lets you message people on the go, easily and effectively (than the other application).

At times, you might want to log out of your messenger account so that your friend or colleague can use the application OR for many other reasons. But the sad news is that the messenger doesn’t have a “Log Out” feature on mobiles. In fact, you can actually log out of your account and log in with another Facebook account.

How? That’s what you’ll be learning through this post.
