    Although I delete some messages (while not using a wi-fi connection) they are restored as soon as I connect it with a wi-fi connection. Is there a way to stop this?

    If you're talking about Facebook Messenger, or some other messenger system, contact the people running it. Some of them only delete messages on your phone and not on the server, so when you connect again it's a different connection and you get all the messages on the server. If there's a way to change that (delete from the server when you delete), that would be up to them.

    Welcome to Android Central! When you're not on wi-fi, are you connected to mobile data? Which device do you have?

    What about my other question -- when you're not on wi-fi, are you connected to mobile data? If not, then any changes you make (like deleting a message) won't be registered on the FB Messenger server. When you connect again, it likely syncs back that message. You probably need to delete messages only when you have a web connection, if you want the deletions to stick.

    Thanks again. I am using mobile data while deleting messages. So as you suggest that deletion may not be registered on the server. But is there any way to delete it permanently using mobile data?

    I don't use FB Messenger, so I'm not entirely familiar with its settings -- check its menu and see if there's an option to sync only on wi-fi. If so, turn that off.
