Disable ‘Seen’ & ‘Typing’ Indicators For FB
Available for free at Chrome Web Store, the extension Facebook Unseen prevents Facebook’s Chat API to send the Seen stamp to your recipient, hence enabling you to read text messages without the sender knowing that you have seen it. When downloaded and installed, the add on places its button near the address bar.
There’s no configuration that you need to do, as Facebook Unseen automatically enables the block feature for you and its icon turns to blue, indicating that it is currently enabled. Though if it’s disabled, you can click this button to enable it. When Unseen mode is enabled, your friends will no longer be notified of whether or not you have read their message. Fortunately, the extension can also be disabled with one click without requiring to remove or disable it. When enabled, you can click this button to revert back to the default state. A confirmation message also appears to verify that Facebook Chat unseen is disabled.
