How to see the phone number on Messenger

So if you are wondering how to see the phone number on Messenger, you should know that there is an integrated function in the instant messaging service with which you can view the Facebook profile of a user in which it is possible to report his phone number. This can only be done if the user in question has shared the number on his profile (see also How to see a person's groups on Facebook).

This is an absolutely essential condition, without which it is actually impossible to find the phone number via Messenger. However, if the user has actually shared the number on their profile, you can find it with a few simple steps. Just use your smartphone and the Messenger app you downloaded. But let's go in order, starting with the procedure you need to carry out if you have a device Android.

First start the Messenger app on your smartphone and type the name you are interested in by entering it in the "Search" text field (you can find it at the top). Once you have identified the contact whose number you want to find, tap on it to start the chat. A screen should appear, where you will have to tap on the icon (i) that you find at the top right: here press the "Profile" button to see the information about the user. At this point, press the "View profile on Facebook“: The Facebook app will be started automatically, after which you will be shown the Facebook profile of the user whose number you want to find.

Once you have reached the Facebook profile you are interested in, all you have to do is scroll a few lines and press on the wording “See the information of [user's name]”. A new screen will open, which you will have to scroll down to find the section "Contact Information". In case the user has shared their phone number on Facebook, you can read it next to the handset icon.

Now let's see the procedure to be carried out if your device is a iPhone. You must always first start the Messenger app and type the name of the person you are interested in in the "Search" text field at the top. Once you have identified the user, tap on her name to start the conversation screen. Once you have reached this point, tap on the username and then press the "Profile" button on the screen that opens.

Once all this is done, the Facebook app will automatically start, so you can view the information of the friend in question. From here on, the procedure is identical to that seen for Android, namely:

  • Press on the wording "See information of [username]"
  • Locate the section "Contact Information”By scrolling the screen you were sent back to
  • Find the phone number next to the handset icon (assuming the user wanted to share this information)
