How to Remove a Tag on a Photo on Facebook

by Wendy on July 16, 2012

Sharing photos remains as one of the most popular features for users on Facebook.

In fact, Facebook places more emphasis on photos that are shared, ranking these higher in the newsfeed than posts by users without images.

Apart from uploading them on your wall and albums, another way to share a great photo with friends is by tagging them.

When you a tag a person in a photo, it immediately shows up on his or her wall.

Some people may be happy with this, but there are others, for various reasons, who do not wish to be tagged.

This should not present a problem, however, as Facebook provides its users with the option to untag themselves from a picture.

Previously in the old profile, the option to remove the tag was easy to find as it sat right beside the name of the person, below the photo.

With the introduction of Timeline, however, the process of untagging yourself from a photo has changed.

How to Remove a Tag on a Facebook Photo

On the Timeline now, the steps are fairly simple if you want to remove a tag from a photo.

First, click on the photo where you have been tagged.

When the large photo shows up, hover your mouse below the picture to display the four options available – tag photo, options, share and like.

To untag, click Options and a small box will appear with a list of actions that you can choose from.

Choose the Remove Tag option to untag yourself.

Your name will no longer be tagged against that photo.

So there you go.

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.

How to Remove a Tag on a Facebook app or game

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.

Have you been tagged in a Facebook app? Leave your thoughts below.
