How to Log Out of Messenger on iPhone

The Messenger app does not have a native way to log out. However, since it’s an extension of Facebook, you can control your security settings for Messenger, which includes logging out through the Facebook app.

To log out of Messenger on your iPhone, you’ll need to open up the Facebook app. Inside Facebook, see the menu at the bottom of your screen. Tap on the Menu button to open it, and then tap on the gear icon on the top right of the screen to get to your settings.

The settings menu has a long list of options, and you’ll want to find the Password and security option near the top. On the Password and security page, you’ll see a section near the top labeled “where you’re logged in.” This section shows you every device currently logged into your Facebook account.

Since Messenger requires a Facebook login, the security page will show any device using your login credentials for Facebook or Messenger. Simply tap on your device using Messenger (it should say “Messenger for iOS”), and then press the Log out button on the on-screen popup.
