How To Deactivate Facebook Last Seen/ Last Active Timestamp

It could also make some of your friends to call/send you a message which can prevent you from working.

I turned off chat for all my contacts thinking that would solve the issue but I was wrong. The only thing it did was  to disable the green button but the time stamp was still there and this to me is a huge obstruction to privacy.

After moments of trials and errors, I finally found something that disabled the Facebook time stamp and I’d share it with you.
