What is vanish mode on Facebook Messenger?
Facebook has introduced a new feature to the Messenger app called vanish mode.
The feature allows users to send a message that will disappear once the person has read it, essentially allowing you to have a secret conversation with somebody.
You can choose exactly how long you want the message to be visible for by setting a timer, and then the message will be gone forever.
Want to give it a try? Here’s how.
How to use vanish mode
Vanish mode only works if you have the latest Facebook Messenger update, so you must first update your app.
- Open Messenger.
- Tap the icon in the top right-hand corner that looks like a pencil inside a square.
- Press the word ‘secret’ in the top right-hand corner.
- Choose the person you want to have a secret conversation with.
- Type your message.
- Click on the timer to the left of the text box and choose how long you want the message to be visible for.

You can also enable vanish mode by swiping up whilst you’re messaging someone.
