Many Facebook users today are using various apps and games on this top social media site. These tools are helpful and can entertain people but they have their disadvantages as well.

A downside of these apps and games is their ability to tag people even those who do not wish to be tagged.

When this happens, those who were included will receive a post on their wall notifying them that this person sent a game request or they have been tagged in an app that posts photos.

If you’d rather not have people randomly tagging you, Facebook allows its users to easily untag themselves from an app or game.

It’s via the privacy settings section that you can adjust what you need to change.

If you don’t want this to happen, there are simple steps you can take.

First, go to your privacy settings by clicking the down arrow on the top right hand corner beside Home.

On the privacy settings page, go to Apps and Websites and click Edit Settings.

The next page will show you several options.

Choose How people bring info to apps they use and click the Edit Settings button.

A new window will show with various options and boxes beside each.

To stop people from tagging you, uncheck the My Photos box and hit Save.

Taking this action will no longer include you in the apps and games people use that can tag their friends.

There you have it. Now you can control whether or not people can associate you with Facebook apps.
