Messenger and Instagram recently unified their discussions in Europe, with a series of news for users. One of the most recent features to be introduced is Self-Destructing Cats, which were announced in November. Although this is not the only privacy feature that we can use, since we also have the temporary mode.
Temporary mode is a function that takes some time available in Messenger for Android. With this function, all messages that have been sent in a conversation will be deleted once said chat is closed. So, each time, you’ll start from scratch and have a little more private chat.

- Abre Messenger.
- Enter the chat where you want to activate this temporary mode.
- Click the i icon.

- Activate this option in the chat.
- When you close this chat, the messages will be deleted automatically.
With these simple steps, the so-called temporary mode is activated in your Messenger account. When you close the chat where you were talking to this person, messages that have been read will be deleted directly when you close the chat. It is important to keep in mind that which are the ones that have been read, you have to get the play icon in the chat to confirm it. Those which are not displayed as read will not be deleted.
