How to enable night mode for Facebook

Update 06.03.2019

The long waited Dark mode for Messenger (iOS and Android only!) is already here! You probably heard of it because you received a crescent moon emoji from a friend. Currently (06.03.2019) the dark mode setting can be unlocked by simply sending a crescent moon emoji .
Once you send the emoji you will be prompted to enable dark mode. Dark mode is becoming a norm for any mobile app, web app or website. It is no surprise that the interest in dark ui has skyrocketed since 2018. As we are spending more and more time staring at screens, our eyes are paying the price for the screen addiction. The dark mode reduces the glare and is mostly useful at night or in low light environment.

Important - If you want to enable Dark mode for Facebook Messenger on your phone, the above information is sufficient. If you are looking to enable dark mode on Facebook and Messenger on desktop, keep reading!

You are sitting late at night either on your desk or on the couch with the laptop on your lap. You turned off most of the lights to increase the cosy-ness and just chill while surfing through the internet. You go to Facebook just to check what is going on with friends, family and around the world and … BANG.

The brightest white screen ruins everything. Your eyes start burning. Tears begin to blur your vision, but you try to look brave. Save your braveness for more appropriate time and enable night mode on Facebook.

People have been asking for quite a while Facebook to provide Night mode (like Twitter did), but still no action has been taken by the largest social network.

Well, so far there are rumours that the messenger app for iOS and Android is getting major a redesign with night mode included, but there is no specific date mentioned.
Furthermore nothing is being said about the web app getting night mode or any redesign what so ever.
So we need to find a way around that and get that night mode enabled.
Luckily there is a solution for both
