block facebook but not messenger#130


not sure if this is possible with the vpn mechanism opal uses, but It seems that FB messenger is not working when facebook is blocked. I waste time on facebook and want it blocked, but I frequently have to use messenger to coordinate with others and having to ‘pause’ the schedule just to check messenger rather than allowing message notifications to refresh as intended is quite distracting (and leads me to blow time on facebook while I wait for messenger to refresh after reconnect…)

Hi there,

Thanks for your message.

Unfortunately, Facebook uses the same servers for Messenger and Instagram so there’s no way to unbundle it and isolate/whitelist Messenger only at the moment we are afraid :/

But I can assure you we’re actively looking into how to resolve this and make it happen.
