This disables the launcher in your app (or on your website) which allows your users to contact you, and see their past conversations with you. Your Messenger visibility settings will also apply to the Messenger on your Help Center.

Can I still message my users?

All your outbound in-app messages are still delivered to your users even when the Messenger launcher is disabled.

These will be available to view if the launcher is turned back on.
