How To Use Messenger Without a Facebook Account

Messenger lets you easily communicate with friends. It's a separate app, but it's also part of Facebook and you can sync your accounts between both. However, many users have grown tired of Facebook given the recent scandals, and some have decided to close their accounts. Despite closing your account, you will also be able to continuing using your Messenger account. We'll explain how.


How To Use Messenger Without a Facebook Account

To get started, download the Messenger app on your phone. Once downloaded, you can either link your account with your existing Facebook profile or create a new account.

If you already have a Facebook account that you haven't yet deactivated, you can log into Messenger with it. If you deactivate your Facebook account after, you will still have access to Messenger.

To create an account on Messenger without a Facebook account, you will need to enter a phone number to confirm your identity, similar to other instant messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Tinder:



Enter your phone umber, and click Next. Enter a password, and then accept the terms of use. You'll receive a verification code via SMS to activate your account.

Syncing of Contacts

If you don't have Facebook, you can still sync your contacts with your cell phone's contact list. Messenger will prompt you to sync them upon logging on the first time. Just click Accept and it's done.
