Hide 'seen at' & 'is typing' Feature In Facebook Chat

When seeing this feature for the first time, it was like 'Wow a great feature..!', but when Privacy is concerned, no one needs it. Yes, I am talking about the 'seen at' feature in facebook chat box which was added a few months ago.

This 'seen at' feature is great one to confirm whether your friend saw this message or not, but it is quite uncomfortable when others get to know that you have seen their message and not yet replied. Especially, in case of the one you wish not to talk with.

As soon as this 'seen at' feature was added to facebook, many addons & extensions were released to save people's privacy by hiding this feature. Unfortunately, leading browsers deleted those addons in the name spam.


This trick can be played only with the most famous & legit addon 'ADBLOCK PLUS' which is available for almost all browsers.

'Adblock' is an extension which wisely removes all the ads & unwanted popups when you browse through internet and boosts the speed of your browsing.

Download Adblock Plus for
Chrome | Firefox | Safari | Opera

If you are using Internet Explorer, sorry there is no 'Adblock' extension for it yet.

Follow the below steps corresponding to your browser.

The steps are very much simple and the cool thing about this trick is 

You can still see if others had 'seen' your message or not but Your friends can't see that you have 'seen' until they have seen this tutorial of crackroach.
