While many users initially discovered their calls and texts were being logged by downloading their Facebook archives, the process for finding whether or not these settings are enabled is actually much simpler (although you probably should download your Facebook archive). If you have zero memory of approving this data to be logged, there’s a chance you aren’t affected in the first place.
Disabling Call & Text History Logging in Messenger
To find out whether Messenger is logging your calls and texts, tap the profile icon in the top-right corner of the display. Next, scroll down and tap on “People.” If you allowed Facebook to log your calls and texts, you will see those settings here under “Continuous Call and SMS Matching.” If you don’t see these settings, Messenger isnotlogging this data.
To disable logging, simply tap “Continuous Call and SMS Matching.” If prompted via a popup, agree to disable the feature. As long as you see “Off” here, you know Messenger won’t be accessing and logging your calls and texts.
As far as all your other information goes, however … that’s another story. Check out our guide below to ensure you’re doing everything you can to protect your privacy on Facebook.
