Do you want to log in to FB Messenger without the App? Don’t worry; we got you. First, we need to know why one wants to do so. Well, there could be a lot of reasons; you might want to know how to use another account or log in to another Facebook account. There can be a lot of reasons, you might not have enough space to download the messenger app, but at the same time, you want to use it because it is faster and more convenient. But how to use it without a Facebook account?
Step 1 – Create a Facebook account if you do not have one.
Do you know how to use Facebook? Well, the first step is to create an account on Facebook because the users use the messenger application, which is used for simply sending messages faster and more efficiently. To create an account on Facebook, you need to go to its official website or download the application from Google PlayStore or Apple Store.
Once you do that, you need to enter your mobile number or email address. After that, you will receive an email or an OTP, depending on what information you have filled in the Sign-up form. You are all set to use the app since you created your Facebook account.
Step 2 – Using Messenger App via Facebook Account
To do so, you must head to www.messenger.com from your android phone or iPhone. Now, you will need a Facebook account. But the best part is that if you ever had a Facebook account, which is now deactivated, you still learn how to use that account to use the messenger on android or iPhone without logging in on the app.
Now, you need to log in or Sign-up; all you have to do is use the account you are currently using or use some old deactivated account on Facebook. If you do not have a Facebook account, go back to step 1 and create your account.
Step 3 – Getting started
You can open your phone’s browser, go to m.facebook.com and log in. When you land on the home page, you can see a sign in the middle of the three icons at the top. You have to click the middle icon, and it should start showing messages from your previous conversations. Now, this may not be a very convenient way to use messaging, but it is one of the ways how you can use the messenger app without logging in.
More ways to use the Messaging Medium
The Facebook messenger app’s purpose is to send messages from one person to another. You can either download the app or the Facebook Lite. It is one of the ways to use it without the app on the iPhone or android.
Facebook Lite is an alternative to the Facebook app, but as the name suggests, it is a lighter version of Facebook and requires very little space. You can even send messages using it without logging in to the app.
The Old School way
Before the expansion of the internet in India, remember how we used to connect our Facebook accounts to our phone numbers. Well, that is another way of using the messenger app without login. All you have to do is enter your phone’s settings and find “Apps.” Select “Messenger” from here and then scroll down; you will see an option that says “Default SMS App.”
You have to turn this setting off so that messages will no longer be sent through it but instead from your phone’s default messaging app (e.g., Android Messages or iMessage). Now, if someone sends you a message, you will receive a message. Not only that, but you can also reply from your default SMS application, and the receiver will receive the message on his/her’s app or their default SMS application.
Logging in from your Desktop
Facebook Messenger app is invented for your comfort and convenience, yet the best way to use Facebook is to use it from your Desktop or Laptop. Its website version is user-friendly and does not require the app to log in. This is the most popular way to use the voice & text messaging medium without the application.
The developers at Facebook use a chat plugin to integrate it directly into in website. This makes the user experience very smooth, as it does not need external logins or anything.
Also, it is not as complex as it sounds; you can log in to your Facebook account, click on a friend’s name, and start chatting with them. If you want to ensure that the website is integrated with the messenger plugin, you can send a message from your website and look for the same in your android or iOS app.
Using the Desktop version from your Mobile
Even if you do not have a Desktop, you can still learn how to use Facebook’s desktop version. Open your mobile phone’s browser and go to www.facebook.com; you should see three dots in the top right corner. You must click on those dots and select the ‘Desktop site.’ You will be directed to Facebook’s desktop page. Now you have to click on the hamburger icon and tap on messenger. A new page should appear, which is Facebook’s messenger page. You should be able to use this desktop version as you would use it on your PC.
The above-discussed points are the ways to log in to Facebook Messenger without the application login. There could be n number of ways why someone does not want to use the text messaging app but still somehow wants to be in touch; the article covers all of them.
Facebook has separated the main account from the messenger account. Although it does not make sense if the resources are to be believed, Facebook is trying to track down fake and bot accounts.
The most common factor for not using the voice & text messaging application is the lack of space in one’s mobile phone. The application’s size is 54.05 Mb, and it needs a total of 65 permissions before it can start functioning on your android or iOS device. One of the biggest competitors of Facebook was What’s App, but in 2014, Mark Zuckerberg acquiredWhatsApp for a massive sum of $19.3 billion. This happens to be the largest acquisition of a venture-backed company in history.
