How do I check my message requests in Messenger?

If someone who you're not connected with on Facebook sends you a message, you'll receive a message request. Replying to a message request connects you with the person who sent the request and lets you see any media they sent you.
To see your message or connection requests:
Desktop App
  1. Open Messenger for Windows or macOS.
  2. Click on your profile photo in the top left corner.
  3. Click Message Requests.
Desktop (messenger.com)
  1. Open Messenger for Windows or macOS.
  2. Click .
  3. Click Message Requests.
From Message Requests, you can:
  • Reply to open the conversation and connect with the person.
  • Click Delete to remove the request.
  • Click Block to block the person.
  • For a group message request, you can select Delete or Leave Group.
