  1. Could you please post instructions for doing this on the desktop version? It doesn’t work this way on the desktop. Thanks!

    • Hi Bill,

      Are you using an iPhone or Android smartphone? I checked both on Android and iPhone. It works like a charm.

      The “Remove tag” option will only appear after you report that comment. Facebook will let you remove yourself from the comment afterward.

      Let me know if you still have any questions.

  2. Hello. Is this the updated version of Facebook? There is no option when touching my own name. The whole bubble of comment box you will have to click and the remove tag no longer exist. Tried this as of today. Thanks.

    • Hi Mary,

      Yes, this is the updated version of Facebook.

      I tried yesterday, and it worked. You’ve to click and hold on your name and report the comment. It works on both Android, iOS, and also on Facebook web/desktop. Choose Spam, and then you’ll see the option to remove the tag.

      I will also try to add steps to remove the comment tag from Facebook web/desktop this week, Insha Allah.

    • When you get to the screen that requires you to select an issue, such as harassment or bullying, select one of those options. Then scroll down and choose ” I don’t know. I’d like to see other steps I can take.” From there, you can block the person, and/or untag yourself.

  3. Note that in the last couple of weeks (April 2021) this option is no longer available in the Report this Comment menu. Have you worked out how we now remove a tag?

  4. I didn’t really want to report the comment as spam, since it wasn’t selling anything, but it seems to have been necessary in order to untag myself from the comment. Oh well …

    thanks for letting me know how to do it
