If you’re active on Facebook, chances are you make use of the social media site’s built-in Messenger app, and if you use it a lot, your inbox might be flooded with old conversations.
You can delete any Messenger conversation by right-clicking or tapping it. But you don’t have to erase these conversations forever, instead you can archive them, which will remove the chat from your inbox and move it to a new folder. This is great for savings messages from old friends, or chats with valuable information in them.
In this guide, we will show you how to find archived conversations on Facebook Messenger using the mobile app and website.
How To Find Archived Messages On Facebook Messenger
