Personally, I don’t think it makes any sense to separate the main Facebook app from Facebook messenger. Some people say Facebook is trying to crack down on Fake Facebook accounts. At the moment, it’s impossible to view your Facebook messages on the Facebook main app without downloading the Messenger app.
This might not be workable for some people, especially if you’ve got little memory space on your mobile device. If you don’t mind downloading the Messenger app, all good for you.
Some people just don’t like the idea of downloading so many apps on their mobile phone, it might be for privacy reasons or any other reason. I will show you in this article how you can use messenger login without app.
