Questions and Answers

Hello, I would like to know how to delete a group I created by mistake in the messenger?

How to delete a messenger group?

I've been trying to find an answer that works for me. How can I delete a whole group from Messenger?

I still do not see How can I delete a Messenger group. It does not let me delete all members, which still wouldn't make the whole group go away anyway. I see how can I delete the group conversation string but that doesn't take care of deleting the group itself with all the different solutions I have tried. Maybe one can't actually delete a whole messenger group but if that is so, it would be nice to see that in writing.

If I uninstall message from my iPhone will it stop the scam message that is being sent to everyone I had on message?

I have been hacked on my iPhone and I want the message that was sent to me to stop going to people in my message group. I didn't see where it was covered and where should I look

Uninstalling the app will not remove or stop previously sent messages. You should notify the group that you have been hacked. Then wipe your phone entirely back to factory settings. When you do activate messages again, change your login credentials.
