On Facebook, if someone wants to get your attention or make it clear to others that you are somehow connected to a post, they can tag you in it. 

Your name will be mentioned in the post or with the photo, and everyone else who sees it will also know that you are mentioned. 

That’s great, except you didn’t consent to being tagged, and it’s possible you don’t want to be associated with that post. The good news? It’s easy to untag yourself. 

The process for untagging yourself is the same, whether you’re using Facebook in a browser or via the mobile app on your phone or tablet. 

Here’s how to do it.
