How to untag someone on Facebook from a photo or post

ReutersIt’s easy to untag someone on a Facebook post or photo in just a few steps.


Facebook tags are a way to directly share a post or photo with a specific person, and to indicate who you were with at a certain event or time.

However, if you mistakenly tag someone or decide that you no longer want that person tagged, you’re able to untag them in the post or photo.

The process is similar whether you’re using a computer or the Facebook mobile app on your iPhone or Android phone.

Here’s how to do it.

3. If you’re untagging someone who you’ve tagged in the text of a post, simply, edit, highlight and delete the name, as you would if you were deleting a word.

4. If you indicated that you were with a user in your post, tap on that person’s name in the “Edit Post” screen. This allows you to add additional tags, or you can deselect the person that you would like to untag.

5. You cannot untag someone from a Facebook photo directly from your timeline. First, click on the photo to open it. On desktop, select “Edit.” On mobile, select the “tag” button at the top of the screen. From there, you can untag people by hitting the “x” next to their name.
