Sharing is caring! Yes, we all have heard this and across the worlds people share their mobile devices with family members and friends. Facebook Messenger is widely used and taking that into consideration Facebook has now given full support for multiple account. More simpler communication with log in for multiple people for Android.
Now people can use their account from a single and shared device. Do not worry about the privacy. The messages are completely private. The person sharing the device will only be able to see your number of notifications of messages only, not the messages content making it secure.
