I'm only a moderate user of Facebook, and I don't use Facebook Messenger at all. However, if a friend messages me on FB Messenger, I get an alert on my phone that I can't clear without going to the desktop site or installing Messenger. I've found that if a friend messages me, I can block them individually when this happens, but I don't want to have to do this each time. Is there a way to disable or otherwise block all Messenger conversations to my account?

    You should be able to turn off the phone notifications. On Android, go into Settings for the app, go to Notifications, and turn off the notifications for "Messages". – ale May 7 '16 at 20:42
  • @ale That does not seem to be a complete solution. I still get notifications for unread messages from the Facebook app, even without having Messenger installed. – Vidar S. Ramdal Aug 28 '17 at 8:01
