Ignore Messages from Individuals using Facebook Website
Ever wanted to know how to ignore someone’s messages on Facebook without them knowing? It’s pretty simple, and I’ll walk you through it. When you choose to ignore messages, Facebook makes sure you won’t get any notifications when that person messages you. The chat will move to your Spam folder. And don’t worry, Facebook keeps it a secret – the person you ignore won’t know about it.
Here’s how you do it:
- Open Up Facebook: Just log in to your Facebook account.
- Find the Messenger Icon: It’s usually in the top right corner. Click on it and pick a chat you want to ignore.
- Click the Down Arrow: You’ll see this in the chat. After clicking it, choose ‘Ignore Messages’.
- Confirm Your Choice: A pop-up will ask if you’re sure about ignoring the messages. Just click ‘Ignore’.
That’s it! Now you know how to use the ‘Ignore Messages’ feature on Facebook’s website. It’s like putting a conversation on silent mode.
Ignore Messages from Individuals using Messenger App
Want to ignore messages from someone on your Messenger app? It’s actually easier than you might think. Here’s a quick guide on how to do it:
- Open Your Messenger App: Just tap on the Messenger app on your phone.
- Find the Chat: Scroll to the conversation you want to give a break.
- Tap on the ‘i’ Icon: This is usually at the top of the chat. Then select ‘Ignore Messages’.
- Confirm by Clicking ‘IGNORE’: One more tap, and you’re all set.
When you ignore someone’s messages, their messages won’t show up in your regular inbox and won’t notify you. These messages go straight to spam. But here’s a twist: if you decide to reply to one of these messages later, it pulls the conversation back to normal, and it’s no longer in the spam zone. You and the sender can chat like usual again.
Marking a message as spam on Messenger is kind of like blocking them – they can’t message you after that. But don’t worry, they won’t know you’ve read their message unless you reply. And if you delete or decline the message, they won’t be notified either.
Some Key Points About ‘Ignore Messages’:
- Ignoring messages doesn’t mean unfriending. If you’re friends, you’ll stay friends.
- Ignoring doesn’t stop them from sending messages, but you just won’t see them.
- No more notifications from someone you’ve ignored.
- They can still see your active status on Messenger.
- You can change your mind and unignore them anytime.
- Declining their message? They won’t get a heads-up.
- Ignored messages stay in ‘delivered’ status.
- If you accept an ignored message, the sender will know you’ve seen it.
That’s how you use the ‘Ignore Messages’ feature in your Messenger app. It’s like putting certain chats on silent while keeping everything else buzzing.
Can they see my active status if I ignore them on Messenger?

Can I UnIgnore Messages on Messenger?

Yes, a person can still call you on Messenger even if you’ve ignored their messages. But there’s a catch: when they call, they’ll quickly get a “Did not answer” message, usually within 1-2 seconds.

How do you know you’ve been ignored in Facebook Messenger?
Messenger doesn’t directly tell you if someone has ignored your messages, but there are a few hints you might notice. Remember, these are just educated guesses and not definite signs:
- Quick ‘Did Not Answer’ on Calls: If your call on Messenger quickly shows “Did not answer,” they might have ignored or blocked you.
- Message Status Color: If your sent message stays in a light blue color, it could mean they haven’t seen it, or possibly, you’ve been blocked.
- Change in Chat Patterns: If you both used to chat regularly but now your messages go unanswered, it’s possible that you’ve been ignored.
Remember, these signs aren’t foolproof. They’re just possible indicators that you might have been put on ‘ignore.’
