If you use a browser, then it's the lower right corner (light gray, the wheel icon) then Turn Off Chat (click and make sure it's not checked).

I'm not talking about that ... i am talking about on mobile devises how it shows that you are online or the last time you where.

So you use Facebook Messenger. Then it's pretty difficult, as Messenger was designed to be on the whole time (with PUSH notifications). You have to do multiple steps in Android (clear data, means you have to type in your login info again), and a full uninstall in Apple. In essence, pretty much not very useful.
So first you have to ask yourself, do you even want to use Messenger?
Yes - do a lot of things everytime you want to go offline, do some more stuff when going back online.
No - use third party apps (like Friendcaster), that do NOT integrate Messenger functionality

Then you use the official Facebook app ? Uninstall, and use third party (like Friendcaster)
Also, after that, use a computer, start a browser, go to facebook, settings, security, "Where You're Logged In", End all activity.

If you are looking to do more than remove session activity data, then try the steps below. I think it might be what you are looking for. Unfortunately, Facebook updates these settings all the time to make it more difficult for you to remove your tracking/activity.

Go to Account Settings, and choose "Apps" on the left navigation. Then choose "Apps Others Use" and un-click the "If I'm Online" box (see image below).

I think this may solve your problem. If not, let me know, and I can look into it further.
