how to block facebook-chat and allow facebook

Hi,

 

Is there a way today to just block facebook-chat application but allow facebook for surfing and viewing posts. I think this requires ssl decryption but I am not sure.

Kind of a big deal

Re: how to block facebook-chat and allow facebook

I don't know the answer.

 

Have you tried blocking access to the URL messenger.com ?

Found this list of URL's you can try blocking, I have not tried this to see if it is effective so please take it with a grain of salt. 

 

*.facebook.com/ajax/chat/hovercard/*
*.facebook.com/ajax/chat/*
*.facebook.com/ajax/groupcall/*
*.facebook.com/ajax/mercury/*
*.facebook.com/ajax/presence/*
*.facebook.com/messages/*
*.facebook.com/messaging/*
*chat.facebook.com/*

*.messenger.com/*

 

Please let me know if this works for you. 

 

Thanks

How did this turn out?

 

Were you able to block just the FB Messinger?
