How to Uninstall and Delete Facebook Messenger
If you delete Facebook, all of your data is gone. However, you might not be aware that deactivating your Facebook account does not remove Facebook Messenger. People will still be able to see you and attempt to contact you after deactivating your account. In light of this, here’s how to deactivate Facebook Messenger.
You may remove Facebook messages from your own discussions using the Facebook website or the Messenger app on your phone. After that, the message is removed from your copy of the conversation, but it persists in everyone else’s versions.
If you have your Facebook messages saved in the Messenger app on your phone, using this method is simple. Select the message and then choose Unarchive Message from the drop-down menu. To unarchive a message, simply click it and choose Unarchive Message from the drop-down menu.
When you remove a Facebook chat, it’s gone on your end for good. If you need access to their information for official purposes like proving that you were communicating with someone at a specific time, such as an investigation into child abduction or child molestation, ask them to send you a copy of their data.
After you’ve destroyed your Facebook account, it will be kept accessible for 30 days in the hopes that you’ll change your mind. All that should remain of your account 90 days later is a activity log or two generated by Facebook for its own use. (Try signing on again to be sure.)
