If I Ignore Messages on Messenger Can They See I’m Online

We all have our reasons for deciding to ignore someone on Messenger. Maybe your grandma is spamming you with messages or you are trying to avoid responding to your friends’ countless questions.

Whatever your reason may be for choosing to ignore someone on Messenger, you may be wondering if they can see that you are ignoring them. The sad truth is that they can.

Through the Messenger app, you will notice that anyone who you have recently messaged or has recently posted a story appears right when you open the Messenger app.

Next to each of these Facebook accounts, you will see either a green dot if they are currently using either the Messenger or Facebook app, or you will see a time written in green by their profile picture, indicating how long it has been since they have used either the Messenger or Facebook app.

Therefore, if you are using the Facebook or Messenger app, but are ignoring someone for any reason at all, they will easily be able to tell as your activity is displayed right in the Messenger app.

There is a chance that they do not look at this little feature included on their Messenger app which straight up tells them that you are also online through a green dot or were very recently online as your profile picture says 2 m, meaning 2 minutes since you have been active on Facebook or Messenger.

So, if they ignore that, they will not be able to tell that you are online and ignore them. However, if they are using the Messenger app, this green dot or green writing is fairly hard to ignore and makes it incredibly obvious that you are online but ignoring them, so the chances of them not noticing that you are online is very slim.

Yet, being online does not necessarily mean that you are actively checking if you have any messages. You being online means you are using either Facebook or Messenger, so you could get away with the fact that you are ignoring them if you claim that you were using Facebook, not looking at Messenger.

So even though you are online, you had no idea that they were messaging you on Messenger. While this may be a questionable excuse, it may help you get out of admitting that you were ignoring them instead.
