Open the Facebook app on your device and sign into the corresponding account that you want to disconnect from Messenger.

Scroll down and tap Settings > Account Settings.

Tap Security and Login.

Under the section labeled Where You’re Logged In, you’ll see a list of all the devices and their locations where Facebook remembers you’re login details.

Your device name (such as iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.) will be listed in bold wording with the Messenger platform labeled beneath it.

If you don’t see your device name with the Messenger label beneath it, then tap See More to reveal more devices and platforms where you’re logged in.

Step 6:
Tap the three dots to the left of the device + Messenger listing and select Log Out. The listing will disappear from the list of places where you’re logged in and you’ll be able to open the Messenger app to confirm that your account has been disconnected/logged out.
