How to Get Rid of Facebook App Invites

Save

Whether you enjoy playing Facebook games and trying new apps or not, getting a constant stream of app invitations can become a nuisance for anyone. Facebook makes it easy to stop app requests and notifications. As soon as you receive a new invite, you can block future requests right from your notifications list. You can also use the Blocking page in your Facebook settings to stop requests from apps or from specific friends. If an app you use sends requests and notifications, you can stop its requests using the Notifications Settings.

Stop Facebook app invites as soon as you get one.

Step 3

Block an app from sending invites by typing the app's name in the "Block App" text field. If you have a friend who likes to play games and constantly sends you requests, you can block all invites from that friend by typing his name in the "Block App Invites" text field.

Click the appropriate name when it appears below the text field. You'll no longer see invitations from any friend or app you block. If you change your mind, you can come back to this page at any time to unblock a friend or app.
