My boyfriend has 3 devices (2 phones (Iphone) and 1 laptop). He is logged in on all devices. However, a few days ago I have noticed that sometimes Facebook Messenger shows he is active, but when asked, he denies that he was active at that time. It happens periodically during the day. He becomes active and then goes inactive, but the messages are always delivered successfully. He says that he has checked all of his devices and that he is unable to do anything about it. He uses the same devices and the same network with the same online routine as before the mentioned problem arised. Nobody can access his devices. He is the only one who uses them. He has even checked the login activity as well.

I am concerned that he is indeed online, even though he says he is not. Why didn't it happen a few months ago and what has changed now?
What could be the cause of the problem considering everything above? Could something else contribute to that phenomenon? What can I do to figure that out?

Could be that he was online and has not logged out.
Just closing the browser does not log one out, and FB will that he is still online.

It sounds like you may have a trust issue more than anything.

I think on phones messenger is still on, even though he is not on at the time. I have a friend that shows online but she wasn't at the time. In fact my messenger changed on me while i was in it... new layout.
