There is no way to hide it, unless you totally log out of FB app. That is how I figured out, but you need to test it with friends phone and confirm if the time stamp disappeared once you logged out completely.

Whenever I open Facebook on iPhone it updates the 'last active' time that others see for me when they look at me on Facebook messages on iPhone.

When my mate logs onto Facebook on the same Iphone it doesn't update his 'last active'. In fact be doesn't have a 'Last Active' so nobody knows when he opened up Facebook.

How can this be? And what settings do I need to change so I am like my friend?

I think that is because he logs in via the website and not with the Facebook or Facebook Messenger Apps.

Yep Tom is correct, the timestamp only applies to the FB mobile application. If you log on via a desktop or laptop there will be no timestamp recorded.

The other downside to the mobile time stamp is it seems to drain the battery even more on the iphone 5.

I don't have a last active time. I only go online via the iPhone app I want my last active time to show how can I do this?

I have a friend who shows up in my feed with no timestamp, only the mobile icon but in others with a timestamp and icon. Its like only I have been blocked from seeing it somehow. How is this possible

Do you think it's because you and your friend have different versions of the fb app? Can you check this? I just have a theory that maybe the older version doesnt have time visibility hence you can't see when they are online
I've experienced last active times disappearing for certain friends instantly after updating to a latest version of the FB iphone app. The times didn't reappear for these particular friends until once again, getting a newer version of the FB app. –  Answers  Aug 15th, 2013 at 5:34 AM

How can I hide my last seen from facebook


This is so annoying bc I can't just check a few things, my bf is always checking when I was last active and sometimes I hadn't even been on it that day at all and he say I was active 11 mins ago and screen shots it


Could it be settings on the iPhone privacy affecting the visibility of the time stamp? It also started after downloading the new version of fb


its not that...even logging via desktop one can see the last online.

and how to solve this desktop problem?if u know please. –  buddha  Nov 17th, 2014 at 9:00 AM
