The secret Facebook Inbox you never knew you had!

It has been revealed that Facebook is hiding yet another Inbox we never knew we had – yes, ANOTHER one!

It turns out the social media platform is filtering our messages for us, which means messages that Facebook think are irrelevant to the user are stored into this secret folder.

Hundreds of people have taken to social media following the revelation.


“Oh God, I just found out about the hidden Facebook message inbox. So much hate-mail I never knew about!” one user posted.

How to find your secret inbox:

  • Open the ‘messenger’ app on your phone, then scroll down to the bottom right hand corner and hit the ‘cog’ settings symbol.
  • Click on ‘People’.
  • Click on ‘Message Requests’
  • Scroll to the bottom and click on ‘See Filtered Requests’ and Voilà!!
