Facebook Messenger Now supports multiple accounts for Android

Facebook has made an update to its Messenger App. The update will now make it possible for Facebook Messenger users to access their accounts from the same smartphone or tablet without having to worry about their privacy.

”The beauty of this new feature is that your messages stay completely private. Anyone else who shares the device will just see the number of notifications of messages that you have, but they will never be able to see the content of your messages”, Facebook said in a statement.
Here’s how it works: In the Messenger for Android settings, look for a section called ‘Accounts’. Here, you can add the accounts related to each person. The first time someone switches from another account on a phone to their account, Facebook Messenger will require a password. After this, the user can choose whether to always require a password. In just three steps, you can move between accounts, and your private messages will always remain just that – private. It’s as simple as that. If you want to stop sharing a phone, it’s simple to remove your account from that particular device.
This comes just weeks after Instagram also launched a similar feature enabling users to add and switch between multiple accounts.  With this feature Instagram users can now add up to 5 Instagram accounts and quickly switch between them without having to log out and log back in.
