Preliminary information

Before delving into the heart of this guide and actually seeing how to see last login on Facebook, allow me to provide you with some preliminary information that you must necessarily know in order to understand what is described in the next paragraphs.

First of all, it is my duty to tell you that, at present, the Facebook site no longer allows you to see the last access of other users. Following some changes that were made to the platform in 2019, in fact, this data is no longer available.

What you can do instead is see the activity status on Messenger, the instant messaging platform managed by Facebook. Of course, this isn’t exactly the same as knowing when a user has actually logged into Facebook, since Messenger can also be used without the social network (as I explained to you in this other guide), but it’s always better than nothing, right?

If everything is clear to you so far and you still intend to learn more about the subject, I suggest you continue reading: in the next paragraphs you will find out how to see the last access on Messenger.

In the screen that opens, you will find the list of users who are active on Messenger, marked with a green dot placed in correspondence with their profile picture. Users who, on the other hand, are not online but were a short time before have the label [N] min next to their name, indicating how many minutes ago they were online.

You should then see the last login information of the person you are interested in immediately under their name. Simple, right?
