How to Block Apps on Facebook

Facebook keeps changing things up and makes it difficult to protect your privacy and limit the number of notifications/ requests you receive. With the recent release of their App Center, I was finally able to figure out how to block application requests again (previously we were able to block them via our privacy settings, but now that is no more and irrelevant).

Per the request of a friend, I decided to make a step by step guide on how to block apps with the (current) setup. If there are any questions, please comment and I will try to clarify. Thank you and good luck!

Beginning at your Home screen, click on "App Center" which is located in the left hand column.

You are now at the App Center. From here click on "Requests" which is located in the left hand column.

This is the Requests page. Some apps you may want to block, others you may want to play. You can click on the title of each app to gain more information about it or to block it. In this example, I chose to block "Gardens of Time".

This will take you to the App Center page for the individual app. This page will give you information about the app so that you can decide if you want to play it or block it. At the bottom right you have options, including the option to Block the app. Click on "Block".

You must confirm that you want to block the app by clicking "Okay".

You should get confirmation that the app has been blocked.

You can return to the App Center and block more apps or continue to do whatever it is you do on Facebook. Enjoy!
