While Instagram gives users control over what posts they are tagged in and what appears on their profile, you cannot control what images other people post. There is no direct way for you to delete a post shared on someone else’s account, even if you are in the photo or video.
How do I remove a tag from someone else’s photo?
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.
Why can I not remove a tag on Instagram?
But for the purposes of untagging, click Photo Options. Once you click on Photo Options you will be able to “Remove Me From Post” or “Hide from My Profile.” Hiding the post from your profile will ensure that it doesn’t show up in the tagged section, but it won’t actually untag you. Click Remove Me From Post.
When you remove a tag does it notify the person?
Removing Facebook Tags from Your Timeline
Facebook notifies everyone who appears in a tag as per above, but it doesn’t notify parties if a tag is removed. Adding a tag has privacy implications; removing a tag does not, so no notification is necessary.
How do you remove a tag?
Android & iOS App
- Visit your personal Facebook page, then select the “Activity Log“.
- Find the post you wish to remove the tag from, then select the arrow next to it.
- Tap “Report/Remove Tag“.
- Select the reason. I usually just go with “I’m in this photo and I don’t like it”.
How do I delete all tagged photos on Instagram?
On your profile, look for the three lines in the top right corner of the screen. Tap Settings, then Privacy, then Tags. You can now remove multiple images from your profile at once. Tap all of the ones you want to hide, then select Hide in the top right corner of the screen.
Can I remove a mention on Instagram?
Unfortunately, there is no way to remove yourself from a mention. Unlike a tag, which you can remove by simply tapping the post, a mention is part of the caption, and therefore cannot be removed. If you block an account after the user has mentioned you, your profile will still remain in their mention.
What happens if you remove a tag on Instagram?
Granted, the image will still be alive on the account where it’s posted, but your name will no longer appear whenever someone taps on the photo. If you wish to merely hide the tagged photo from your followers, selecting “Hide from My Profile” will do just that.
