How do I get the chat box to stop coming up?

It comes up every freakin' time I log on. I don't want it. I never use it. I click unavailable and it still comes up! UGH! HELP! Can I disable it?

  • Go up to the top left of your screen.
    Click on privacy and settings

    enter your password.

    Scroll down to where it says, show cafemom messenger, and toggle that to never. Click on save, making sure it doesn't accidently back to always.

  • But I have to sign off chat EVERY time I log on. It's super annoying. It never did this before two days ago. I noticed Friday that it was like this at work, too. Did CM maybe change something?
