Typically, you get notified of any message on social media apps right away. The messages appear directly in the inbox, but Facebook is also keeping messages from you for quite some time, these messages are hidden from you. Yes, there are two hidden message inboxes that you might want to check.

A few days back, a friend of mine called me and asked if I was ignoring him because he joined Facebook recently and dropped a few messages in my inbox. I said I didn’t see your messages because I haven’t received them. We both wondered why, but then after digging more into it, I found about Facebook’s secret inboxes.

Time needed: 5 minutes.

Here is how to access hidden messages from Facebook’s secret inboxes:

  1. Open Facebook Messenger app and navigate to “People” tab

    In iOS, People tab is on the right side of the “Chats” tabPeople tab in Facebook Messenger for iOS

  2. Find and press “Requests” icon on the upper right corner of the messenger app

    The request Icon looks like this:Message Request icon in facebook messenger for iOS

  3. Open “Requests” and you’ll see hidden messages in Messenger

    This section contains messages from people who aren’t friends on Facebook

  4. Navigate a little down and you will find “Filtered Messages”

    Filtered Messages is the second hidden inbox which contains possible spam messages

  5. You can Accept or Decline the message requests

    Just press the respective button and the selected action will be performedscreenshots of facebook messenger message request inbox

There you go; these were all the hidden messages that the social media network is hiding from you to help you out in getting rid of spam and unwanted messages. But sometimes, important messages can also be a part of this folder, just like my friend’s messages were not showing up. It’s because of Facebook’s algorithm, and it separates messages from possible spam accounts. Keep checking periodically, and don’t miss important messages.
