Facebook Chat Messages can be read at any time you want. Earlier, there was no way to know whether the receiver has read the message or not. But recently Facebook has developed a way in which, the sender can see a text Seen on [Time and Date] or Seen by [Receiver’s Name], thus knowing that the receiver has read the text.
This method has eased the communication system on Facebook, no doubt! But, many people find this system annoying! They want to read the message sent to them but do not want that the sender should be notified about this act. They are right to some extent.
Think a bit, if you are busy with any important work in your PC and just checked your notifications on Facebook. Now, you see that there is a Messages (1) link! Reasonably you will click it. Now, a friend of you has sent you a text. You need to reply to him/her quickly. Otherwise, he/she will see the notification Seen on [Time] and eagerly wait for your answer. But you have no time to reply as you are busy with your work. In this case, this trick will come handy!
Here is the trick about blocking the Seen on, Seen by and is Typing texts to the sender:
FOR GOOGLE CHROME:
Step 2: A pop-up window will ask you to add the extension to your browser. Click on Add button.
Step 3: Now the extension will be downloaded and installed automatically in your browser.
Step 4: All are done! You will get an icon on the right top corner of your browser. If it is clicked, the option changes. When it is blue color, the extension is running. That means, your friends will not be notified if you read their messages now.
If you want to disable this feature, simply click on the icon. It will be disabled and the following message will be shown to you. Now your friends will be notified if you read their messages.
FOR MOZILLA FIREFOX:
Step 1: Click here to download the Greasemonkey add-on from Firefox. Click on Add To Firefox button there.
Step 2: The add on will be downloaded automatically.
Step 3: Now a pop-up window will ask you to install this add-on. Click on Install button.
Step 4: Now restart your Mozilla Firefox.
Step 5: Now visit this link and click the Install button there.
Step 6: A Pop-up window will ask you to install this user script. Click on Install button.
Step 7: That’s it! A message will be shown to you that you have successfully installed this user script.
Now your friends will not be notified by Seen texts if you read their messages. If you want to disable this feature for a while, follow the option shown in the below screenshot. Just unmark the shown option for disabling this feature.
