How to Turn Off Facebook Email


If you don't check your Facebook account very often, getting email notifications when someone asks to be your friend or tags you in a photo may be helpful. If, on the other hand, you're on the site each day to check for new notifications, email notifications are a redundant nuisance. Luckily, you can disable emails from Facebook in just a few seconds. The action is not permanent, and you can enable the service again at any time.

  • Click on the "Account" link in the upper right corner of your Facebook screen.

  • Choose "Account Settings" from the drop-down menu.

  • Go to the "Notifications" tab.

  • Uncheck every box in the "Email" column to stop getting emails from Facebook. Alternatively, leave some of the boxes checked to continue to get certain emails -- each type of notification is listed separately, such as when "someone posts on your wall" or "asks to list you as family."

  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes."

Tips & Warnings

  • You will still get notifications on Facebook even if you disable emails.
