Are you interested to improve your facebook’s chats privacy settings by not letting others know whether you have seen the message or when you start typing the message? Then you should try this chrome extension. Facebook™ Chat Privacy is an extension for Google Chrome which disable the privacy feature “Seen xx.xx pm” and “… is typing” in facebook chats. Note, this works with Google Chrome only with the given extension.

One downside of using this extension is that even though you read the message, the facebook doesn’t recognize it. Example, even after reading the message from the chat, your Message Notification at left side of facebook shows it as unread.
