A simple way to stop constant Facebook emails 8



View Profile

If you have your Facebook account set so you receive an email for every notification then your inbox will be driving you a bit crazy. Luckily, there is an easy way to turn off this setting. You will still get all your notifications via Facebook, just not the additional email. Here is how to adjust your settings:

  1. Click the small down arrow on the righthand side of your Facebook bar (next to the padlock symbol, near your notifications).
  2. In the dropdown menu select ‘Settings’.
  3. In the menu that will appear to the left select ‘notifications’.
  4. Click ‘Email’.
  5. Select the type of notifications and emails you wish to receive.

Do you have any other Facebook questions you would like us to answer?

    • Perhaps you have marked these people as “Following” If so, go to their page, click on the down arrow next to Following and click on Unfollow

    • Quite agree, far too much rubbish on FB now

  2. I hate thinking I am going to watch two cats, etc, having fun and then there it is, an advert

  3. I’d love to stop receiving emails from Facebook. I can’t complete the first step, there’s no padlock on my newsfeed page. What am I doing wrong? Can you make a video?

    • Hi Philippa, another way you can stop receiving Facebook emails is through the actual emails they send you.
      Open up one of their emails. At the bottom of the email, there should be an “Unsubscribe” written somewhere amongst the fine print. Simply click on “Unsubscribe” and it will redirect you to a page where you can manage your email settings. This works for most websites, not just Facebook!

  4. please, please, please stop all emails from facebook. I am old lady and do not want anymore.PLEASE PLEASE
