The Messenger app allows you to ignore the messages if someone is bothering you or if you have been getting too many notifications from someone and you need a break. In a similar manner, it also allows you to undo ignore messages on Messenger in case you want to be notified about the messages again and talk to that person again.
There might be some days when you lack the mental capacity and energy to reply to someone. In those days, ignoring their messages helps you to not be bothered by their texts until you want to talk to them by yourself. In addition to this, it creates much fewer disturbances as you will not be notified about them.

How to Undo Ignore Messages on Messenger?
Once you ignore someone’s messages, it stops the incoming of any notification of calls or messages from them. Their chat box is stored in the spam folder from which you can extract it and undo the ignore message. You can undo ignore messages on Messenger through the following ways:
- By sending a Message on Messenger
- By using Messenger Lite
1.By sending a Message on Messenger
One way to undo ignore messages on Messenger is by sending a message to the person whose chat you have ignored. To do this:
1. Open ‘Messenger‘ app.
2. Click on your ‘Profile icon‘.
3. Go to ‘Message Requests‘.
4. Choose ‘spam‘.
5. Open the chat box of the person whose message you want to unignore.
6. Send a message.
Once you do this, the message gets unignored and the chatbox of that person is displayed without hiding from you on your messenger chat screen.
2. By using Messenger Lite
By using Messenger lite, you can undo the ignore message without having to send a text to that person. To undo ignore messages on Messenger using Messenger Lite,
1. Install and open ‘Messenger Lite‘ and log into your account.
2. Tap the ‘People‘ icon and search the person you want to unignore.
3. Tab that person’s name from search result.
4. Select ‘accept‘.
After doing this, the conversation of that person will silently be unignored and now appear on your main chat list. Even though this process cannot be carried out on the Messenger app, your chat screen still gets updated there as well.
The best thing about this feature is that, once you have set the conversation to ‘Ignore’, you can read the new texts without the person knowing that you have already seen them. It takes the burden off your back and you can reply when ready. The people on the other side can only be notified of you reading the messages once you have unignored them.
In this way, you can undo ignore messages on Messenger. If you already have a messenger app installed on your phone, it is much easier to unignore the messages using the first step. But if you do not want to send a text to that person and still unignore them then, it is better to use the second option and do so by installing the Messenger Lite app.
