Do you use Facebook and/or Facebook Messenger on your iPhone or iPad? If you do, you should take a look at this new tweak. It called SilentMessenger and it contains a whole host of features that allow you to control your privacy. Privacy is a huge issue these days, with most people trying to keep what they do hidden, simply because they don’t see why others should know.

SilentMessenger is the ideal jailbreak tweak because, when you install it, you can control your privacy by :
- Disabling Facebook or Facebook Messenger from showing when you were last active online
- Disabling the apps from showing your online status
- Disabling the apps from showing read and typing receipts from other people
- As well as disabling them all in one go, you can also disable or enable the features individually
Do keep in mind that, when you install SilentMessenger, not only will other people not be able to see if you are online or not, you won’t be able to see if they are online or when they were last active either.
When the tweak has been installed, and you activate Silent Mode, which you must do through the Preferences pane in the Settings app, there will be a blue banner over the top of the app, letting you now that Silent Mode is switched on.
SilentMessenger packs a few more little tricks in its bag too, including :
- A “Do Not Track” function that, when enabled, will also disable Facebook Analytic. That means none of your usage data or usage stats will be passed on to Facebook or Facebook Messenger
- You can send an unlimited number of photos at any one time
- You can send videos that are long in duration
- You can disable the “Video Auto Play” feature in Facebook – you know, the one that makes videos play automatically when you scroll past them on Facebook
- You will be able to easily switch between accounts if you have more than one Facebook account
As you can see, SilentMessenger is feature rich and a very useful tweak for those who value their privacy and want more options in Facebook and Messenger. You can download it from Cydia for just $1.50 and it is compatible with all devices that can run iOS 9, 8 and 7. Free download also possible via 3rd party Repo Sources.
