How to Find/View Message Requests
If someone is not connected with you on Facebook and send you a message. Facebook automatically saves those kinda messages in a hidden inbox called Message Requests. It is a great feature when you are using the standard Messenger version. However, Facebook allows seeing your message requests in the basic version as well.
To find and view Message Requests:

- Click on Messages at the top.
- Scroll down to the very bottom of the messages page.

How to Ignore and Unignore Messages
This is one of my favorite features to ignore and undo ignore messages on Facebook Messenger. It is a great way to stop gettings messages notifications from annoying FB friends. Moreover, thanks to Facebook for adding the feature to the basic version of FB. Today I will show to ignore messages on Mbasic FB and then undo or unignore messages.

So that is how you may ignore a conversation or specific chat notification from an annoying person on Facebook.

Now that you have successfully ignored a conversation, the question is how to undo those messages/conversations. Well, let’s find out.
