This question already has an answer here:

I do not use the Facebook app or the Message app. I have "chat" turned off. Yet, everyone can see (if they click on a past message from me or message they have sent) it shows "active" or "last seen". Why turn your chat off for privacy when, it shows my status in my messages? Am I the only one that's upset about this? Please help with this showing?
