Remember the day when everyone in your family got Facebook and decided to start using Facebook chat? We do, too. It was awful. Thankfully, for those times when you want to be invisible there’s Ghost for Chat.

As much as we love our chats, there’s just some days where you need to get stuff done. Ghost for Chat eliminates Facebook’s endless distractions with one click. You can still chat with the people you want to, you’ll just do so without having the “last seen” timestamp or a green light next to your profile picture so you can cordially dip away.

You can even turn “Unseen Message” on to receive messages without sending read receipts. Just remember you can’t use that to get out of skipping the family reunion.

Be more productive (and private): get a lifetime subscription to Ghost for Chat’s Super Ghost Plan for $39.99 from the Daily Dot store. If you’re a little bit more hesitant to commit, there’s also a 3-year plan for $29.99. That’s a huge reduction off the original price of $199.90!
