Unfortunately for iOS device users, the above method for Android doesn’t work on iPhone or iPad. Despite being able to access the iOS device settings and select Messenger from the app list in a similar way to Android, there are no storage settings to play with in the iOS Messenger app settings.

The following method also works on the Facebook app for Android.

  1. Open the Facebook app and log in to the corresponding account you want to log out of Messenger.

  2. Touch the menu option (represented by the hamburger icon located at the bottom of the screen from the main feed tab on iOS and at the top of the screen on Android).

  3. Scroll down and tap Settings and privacy > Settings .

  4. Touch Security and access .

  6. If you don’t immediately see your device name labeled Messenger underneath, you may need to tap See all to reveal multiple devices and platforms you are signed in to.
