How to delete someone from Messenger by placing them in the archives.

Points to note.

  • This method does not really delete or block the person from your Facebook Messenger.
  • Archived contacts are temporarily removed or hidden from your Messenger chat list.
  • Archived contacts can still send you messages.
  • You can view an archived contact by searching for their names on the Messenger app.
  • You should only do this when you don’t have intentions of completely blocking them off from your Facebook friend list or Messenger contacts.

And here’s how to place a contact in your archives, using the Facebook Messenger app.

  • On your Facebook Messenger app, simply locate a contact that you wish to place in the archives.
  • Long-press on the person’s name and a list of options will be shown to you.
  • From there, select “Archive“.

Once you do so, the person’s contact will be delisted from your Messenger chat list, awaiting the next time he/she chats you up, or you can simply get back to them by searching for their names on the Messenger app.

Once they said you a message, or you send them one, their names will start showing back on your chat list, reason why I said it is a temporary solution, and should only be done when you don’t have the intentions of completely blocking them off from your Facebook friends list.

How to delete or remove someone from Messenger, by deleting your conversation with the person.

Points to note.

  • Deleted conversations still do not mean that the person is restricted from sending you messages.
  • Deleting a conversation simply means erasing your own copy of the conversation between you and the person.
  • Deleting a conversation will also temporarily remove the person from your Messenger chat list until one of you starts up a new conversation again.
  • You should only do this when you simply want to erase a chat or conversation history between you and a person, and not when you want to completely block them off from your Facebook profile.

And here’s how to delete an entire conversation between you and someone on the Facebook Messenger app.

  • On your Facebook Messenger app, locate the contact or person you wish to be deleted.
  • Long-press on the contact’s name, and once again, a list of options will be shown to you.
  • Select the “Delete” option, and that’s all.

Once you do so, and like I said, your own copy of the conversation between you and that person will be completely erased, and the person will be delisted from your Messenger chat list until any one of you starts the chat again.

How to delete or remove someone from Messenger, by totally blocking & unfriending the person on Facebook.

Points to note.

  • This is what you should do when you’re sure and confident that you don’t ever want to talk or chat with that person ever again in your life.
  • A blocked contact cannot send you messages on Messenger, neither can you too.
  • A blocked contact will be unfriended from your Facebook friend list, and they won’t be able to add you back as a friend.
Deleting someone by blocking them on Messenger.

Now that you’re confident that you don’t want to be friends with this person, and don’t ever want to chat with them again on Messenger, then the best thing to do is to unfriend and block them completely on Facebook

And to do that, here’s what you should do.

  • On your Facebook Messenger app, locate the contact that you wish to be blocked.
  • Long-press on the person’s name, and a list of options will be shown to you.
  • From there, select on “Block“, and two more options will be shown to you.

The first one which says “Block messages and calls” means only blocking from them sending you messages or calling you on the Messenger app, while the second one that says “Block on Facebook” means to completely block them on off on the entire Facebook platform.

  • So, go ahead and select the one that suits you the most, and that is all.
  • This person won’t be able to message you, call you, or even see your profile on Facebook (if you used the second option) until unblocked.
