How to Hide and Unhide Chat History with Specific People on Facebook


Why people want to hide their chat messages in Facebook? It’s simply due to privacy concerns. I am sure you people know the importance of keeping your chat messages private. Why should one add fuel to the fire 🙂 by letting others close, see his/her chat messages unintentionally.

If you want, you can simply hide chat messages with any of your selected friends completely on Facebook. Facebook has the option for this. Later, if you want, you can unhide the chat messages again.

If you are too concerned about your privacy, it is better to permanently delete the chat messages in Facebook. In my case I think it’s better to completely delete the chat messages once in a while. I clean my message area on Facebook often.

If you are going for deleting messages in Facebook in the default way, it will consume your valuable time. So I have a solution for this. Little bit off topic?  Don’t worry, I will come to to the hide sections again 🙂
