    This is really starting to annoy me as I have this switched off on my settings on the pc but when I log in via Android it automatically turns it on. Is there any way to keep it turned off?

    The next time you go into the Facebook app it'll be turned on again!

    that's what i mean.

    open up the facebook app, go to chat and you're online.

    press menu > go offline and you're disconnected from chat.

    go out of chat feature and back into the main facebook app, go back into facebook chat and you're online again.

    in the beginning, i thought that the app was smarter than me and automatically signed you into chat when you entered the chat feature but then i started receiving chat messages from people when i wasn't even using the facebook app.

    Okay, I *think* I've figured it out....

    Go to 'privacy settings' (tiny arrow at the top right)
    Click on 'apps and websites'
    Click on HTC app... eg. mine's HTC chacha...
    Under permissions, Where it says 'access messages in my chat' something along those lines, click 'remove'

    I just did it and I Think it's worked! :) x

    Oh, but I did this via my computer, not via the phone,. Don't know if that makes a difference!

    Thanks that really helped, i did that on the computer and then when i clicked on the facebook chat app on my phone it said unable to log in.

    However does anyone know how to then get it back if i want to use facebook chat on my android phone in the future?
