Are you tired of constantly receiving messages on Messenger? Do you want to take a break from the virtual world and log out for a while?

Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of logging out of Messenger on your Android device.

Step 1: Open Messenger

To begin with, open the Messenger app on your Android device. The app icon usually looks like a speech bubble with a lightning bolt inside it. Once you find it, tap on it to open the app.

Step 2: Access Account Settings

Once you’re in the Messenger app, locate and tap on your profile picture at the top left corner of the screen. This will open up your account settings menu.


If you don’t see your profile picture, it’s likely that you’re using an older version of Messenger. In that case, look for the three horizontal lines in the top right corner instead. Tap on them to access your account settings.

Step 3: Scroll Down to Settings

In the account settings menu, scroll down until you find “Settings”. Tap on it to proceed to the next step.

Step 4: Switch Account

In the settings menu, locate and tap on “Account Switching”. This option allows you to switch between different accounts or log out completely.


If you don’t see “Account Switching” directly in your settings menu, try tapping on “Security and Login” first. Then look for “Account Switching” within that submenu.

Step 5: Log Out

Once you’ve accessed “Account Switching”, tap on the “Log Out” button. A prompt will appear to confirm your decision. If you’re sure you want to log out, tap on “Log Out” again to finalize the process.

Step 6: Confirm

After tapping on “Log Out”, you will be asked to confirm your action. Messenger will remind you that by logging out, you won’t receive any new messages unless you log back in. If you’re certain about logging out, tap on “Log Out” once more.


If you have multiple accounts logged in, Messenger might ask you to select the account(s) you want to log out of. Simply select the desired account(s) and proceed with the log out process.

Step 7: Log In Again (Optional)

If and when you want to log back into Messenger, simply enter your credentials (username and password) and tap on “Log In”. You will be able to access your messages and continue chatting with friends and family.


Logging out of Messenger on an Android device is a simple process that can be completed in just a few steps. By following this tutorial, you can take a break from the constant notifications and enjoy some peace of mind. Remember that logging out means no new messages will be received until you log back in again.
