Incoming messages on Facebook sometimes often come from people we don’t know or maybe from people we don’t want to the point where we want to block them so they can’t send messages again on Facebook.

Blocking messages on Facebook can be done without having to block friends if you have previously been friends on Facebook. So just block the message so that people we don’t want can’t send messages to us anymore.

It’s very easy. Here I will explain How to Block Messages on Facebook, be it on Facebook Lite, Messenger, or Facebook PC. Listen well!

  1. Open your Facebook Lite application then open the message from the person you want to block.

The first option is to block messages and calls. That is, you will only block incoming messages and incoming calls on behalf of that person. So that person will not be able to contact you again via incoming messages or inbox and by phone, but will still be friends on Facebook if you were previously friends with that person.

The second option is to block on Facebook. That means you will block that person’s Facebook account. Later that person will not be able to search, send messages, or call you.
