How to Turn Off Game Requests on Facebook

Turning Off Game Requests on Facebook

There are some people that do not like to play games on Facebook, yet their friends keep sending them requests to play. If this is happening to you, then you can simply turn off these notifications. Declutter your notifications feed and focus on the things that matter to you more.

1. First, you must go to your settings page. Do that by clicking on the arrow at the top right corner of the main Facebook page. A drop down list will appear, and then you have to press ‘settings.’


2. On the settings page, look for the option that says ‘notifications.’ It is located on the left side and should have a world image beside it.


3. To the right, you will see a list of options. The top one is entitled ‘On Facebook.’ Click on the ‘edit’ button to the right and then the section will expand.


4. Scroll down through this section until you reach the bottom of it. You should now see an option called ‘app requests and activity.’ Next, click on the ‘edit’ button at the far right.
