CRX id


Description from extension meta

Remove the 'seen' feature from facebook and facebook messenger. You'll be unseen on facebook and facebook messenger.

Image from store Unseen for Facebook
Description from store Have people been mad at you because they noticed you saw their message but didn't respond to it? Have you ever wished you can use the messenger without people noticing you have read their messages? Do you just want to be Unseen? After experiencing these issues all on our own we decided to develop something which solves these problems. How does Unseen work? Download Unseen from the Chrome Webstore Start using Facebook without any worries about your friends knowing that you read their messages. Unseen will completely remove the “seen” feature from the messenger. So your friends won’t be able to tell if you read their messages. Our extension does not remove the “seen at” feature on both facebook.com and messenger.com for you, so you are still able to see when your friends read your messages, but they can't see when you read their message.

  • (2021-02-02) S L: I love facebook Unseen. I receive a lot of messages daily, some from friends, some from unknown individuals, and I am a busy woman. I prefer to reply to messages on my own time, and not feel pressured to reply when unconvenient. So helpful for giving me back some time and freedom!
  • (2021-01-29) Khánh Hưng Trần: cant even send message after install
  • (2021-01-29) Christina M: Is anyone going to fix it?
  • (2021-01-26) NoobMaster99: It used to be helpful and working, but with the new facebook update it's not working anymore. Stuck on loading when using it. It worked for a while to view messages but when you refresh it, it keeps loading and the other person will know you "seen" their chat/s. Please fix this chrome extension. I still give it 5 stars since it totally worked from the old FB design. It's just FB ruined it with their new design. I'm still hoping that the devs of this extension is still trying to fix it for the better. Btw, I'm using this extension called "Switch to Classic design on Facebook" so that I can still use the Unseen extension. It was working also but now it has issues but don't worry, the developer named Mike is fixing the issues so it will work again. Just be patient since they are doing it for free.
  • (2021-01-24) one wan: This used to work very well before, but now it doesn't even function like it used to. Please fix it.
  • (2021-01-24) fred sor: Quit working with Facebook latest update.
  • (2021-01-22) Fionn: Doesn't work (as of January 2021) Tested it using my friend's phone, she could see the messages had been read.
  • (2021-01-21) Jordi Edwin Soliva Maartens: In order to get it working again, install the "Switch to Classic Design on Facebook" Chrome's extension plugin. You will have Facebook with the classic layout again (before September 2020), and Unseen for FB will work correctly as usual. :-)
  • (2021-01-19) Marlon Paderes jr.: It doesn't work anymore on Messenger and Facebook(as January of 2021)
  • (2021-01-19) Peter Walker: Fantastic add-on works as advertised. Providing much needed peace from people who expect just because you read a message that you're suppose to reply
  • (2021-01-18) KING pHILIP teD TungoHan: nice
  • (2021-01-17) myster io: I absolutely loved this extension - except until it stopped working after Messenger & Facebook updated something last December of 2020. I still give this 4 stars though, as the extension worked before.

  • (2021-01-13) Anas Zakarneh: this extension no longer work for about two mounts from now maybe the reason is facebook and messenger updates i have been tried 3 browsers Chrome, Firefox and Edge... i hob to find an alternative way to block the seen feature :(
  • (2021-01-13) K K: Doesn't work anymore :(
  • (2021-01-12) m lee: Worked well for me until recently, when it stopped working (last month or so). As suggested by some on here, I uninstalled and re-installed the extension. After turning on all the permissions flip-switches for the extension, it seems to be working fine, now. Nope. Spoke too soon. It's blocking the "Seen" part but it's also messing up my replies and such now. Did not have these issues before.
  • (2021-01-11) Θανάσης Καρέζος: Used to work but its been a while that it doesnt work
  • (2021-01-11) Daiyan Saigal: It isn't working anymore
  • (2021-01-10) Odessa Catimbang: it's not working anymore
  • (2021-01-10) Elena Christelle Tolentino: BEFORE: It used to work perfectly. I get to ditch some messages by looking at them and then not minding to reply asap. NOW: But now I cant even peak at messages on group chats or individual messages cause some messages will require/need asap responses (and im the type who do not want to respond immediately//just only when theres an emergency). PLS FIX IT.
  • (2021-01-09) George Boudourhs: This extension was working just fine. Facebook changed their API that's why is not working anymore. I hope that the developers will find a fix soon but i don't think so
  • (2021-01-08) hao thai: Used to work like a charm but doesn't work on new facebook UI
  • (2021-01-07) Trixy Lofranco: When I first installed it, it was definitely working just fine and smooth but now it's totally a mess and I can't receive messages rom other people and won't connect to the internet in short it's not working anymore.
  • (2021-01-06) Oliver5078: Nie działa

  • (2021-01-04) Rahlion Ino Ador Roma: Doesn't work anymore
  • (2021-01-04) Christopher Loughrey: It is adding MALEWARE into my computer and floods Chrome with advertisements. google has warned not to install it. DO NOT INSTALL THIS OR IT WILL DAMAGE YOUR COMPUTER!
  • (2021-01-04) Martine Little: Has anyone found a substitute for this? As of now: I installed Revert Site another extension and used it together with Unseen for messenger just use the chat section of facebook.com (it didn't work with messenger.com) Hope this helps! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
  • (2021-01-02) drabya: It used to work with the older version of facebook, but it doesn't work now.
  • (2021-01-01) Raj Andres: NO LONGER WORKING 2021
  • (2021-01-01) S R: This used to work fantastically. Loved it. Now, like many others have posted, it has massive problems. I can't load any existing conversations, any new messages I send don't actually get sent (which has caused some serious communication issues), and I don't receive new messages properly. Hate to go back to being fully 'visible', but this extension now debilitates messenger so I guess I have no choice :(
  • (2020-12-31) Panda Toreno: no longer work anymore, maybe because of the new version of facebook
  • (2020-12-30) Mohammad Anzum: One of the best extension for fb user.........
  • (2020-12-29) Allen Awesomeness: To everyone who is reading this: PLEASE, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS! Since August 2020, this extension has screwed up all my Referer Headings. I didn't even know what a Referer Heading was until a site told me that my Referer Headings were missing. And to this day I still don't even know what a Referer Heading is, all I know is that I can't log into some sites anymore. And some site functions don't work. Today I installed chrome on a brand new computer and everything worked fine. But once I clicked on this extension the Referer problem came back. So THIS is what caused it!!!!! THIS EXTENSION NEEDS TO BE FLAGGED ASAP.
  • (2020-12-29) Luisa Sabban: Worked perfect before December 2020 update, now it doesn't work at all and won't let you use messenger at all. Hoping the devs will work on it soon
  • (2020-12-28) العم هسن: not working anymore
  • (2020-12-28) Robert Larsson: Used to work OK, but as already stated in the reviews, after the Messenger update in December 2020, it does not work and breaks Messenger, so it is unusable. Here's to hoping the developer fixes it.
  • (2020-12-28) Jules Ocampo: It was okay, not until Facebook December 2020 update. When the extension is enabled, old messages won't load and you can't even send a message until you disable the extension. I hope developers will soon find out about this.
  • (2020-12-27) Fredrick Dave Santulan: not working on the updated messenger website. the developer doesn't seem to have any plan to update
  • (2020-12-27) Sasenko Donov: add macedonian language to it, when i sent message it looks like question marks
  • (2020-12-26) Lorens Troy Soltis: why isn't it working, it just completely stopped working after a week, I really liked it though. Please fix this problem ASAP
  • (2020-12-26) Lol Lol: It was great before december, now it doesn't work anymore. 5 star if it gets updated again!
  • (2020-12-26) Maccabeus Ptolemy: Great application. It works the way I wanted it.
  • (2020-12-26) Martin Chan: On the new facebook messenger update, it does not work anymore. Please update your app so it works again. It was working perfectly fine before the early December update of facebook
