An iPhone trick to avoid Facebook Messenger and keep chatting
Recently we’ve seen outrage towards the “new” permissions being asked by your Facebook Messenger App
We’ve found a handy dandy TRICK posted by our friends at TECH CRUNCH for iOS users
The trick here is pretty simple:
- Head into the Facebook app and tap the Messages tab
- Tap the Install Messenger button
- When your phone switches over to the App Store, tap download, then immediately hit the stop button. This cancels the download
- Go back to the Facebook app and enjoy your messages.
The trick works perfectly for now, but don't be surprised if Facebook patches it in the future. If nothing else, at least it'll give you a little extra time before you need to download that useless app.
