If you have been trying to, but cannot delete Facebook app, you are not alone because truth be told it can be quite tedious, that is why I am here to show you how. You can easily delete Facebook app(s) that are connected to your phone, but let me give you a heads up that it can be quite tedious, as you have to delete each app at a time either on a mobile device or on a computer.
Delete Facebook App
Understand that every time you log in to a new app using Facebook, that app becomes linked to your account and your personal information potentially becomes available to third-party companies. Thus you might actually be surprised by how many apps you have linked to your Facebook account, and how they might be slowing down your online experience by constantly interrupting you with updates.
Facebook is quite great for all sorts of activities, ranging from keeping in touch with your friends to showing off your newly captivating photos, sharing your exciting stories as well as chatting with your friends and family.
However, where Facebook falls short is where it fails to keep your personal information private. Thus, any app you do not use, you should delete from your Facebook account, both to keep your information private and to simply keep your phone or computer clutter-free.
