How many inboxes does one app need??

Facebook Messenger has a hidden inbox. OK so you probably already know about that one, but did you know that there's another inbox hidden even further inside the app?

The third inbox (and hopefully final one we'll discover) can be found within Facebook's Messenger app on iPhone or Android.

It's actually really easy to find as well:

  1. Open Facebook Messenger
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Tap on People
  4. Tap on Message Requests
  5. You'll now see your 'Other' inbox where people who aren't friends can send you messages. At the bottom you'll see the words 'See filtered requests', tap on that.
  6. Voila! You can now see the even deeper inbox which Facebook has taken the liberty of hiding.

They're essentially filtered messages that Facebook has automatically decided aren't relevant to you. Of course it might turn out that your long lost friend has been trying fruitlessly to get in touch, but hey, doesn't hurt to check does it.
