Nowadays, Instagram and Facebook are the social media platforms that work very well. Both Facebook and Instagram have a separate user base. Many Facebook users do not often use Instagram, and several young users are progressively shying off from the mothership in favor’s of more social platforms. So, in this article, we will walk you through the entire process of unlinking your Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Let’s talk about what will happen if we unlink Facebook and Instagram.

Firstly, if we unlink these two applications, we would ensure that Instagram will not give us suggestions for following your Facebook friends on Instagram. However, delinking the two will also stop the cross-platform login.

If you unlink from both Facebook and Instagram, then you will not share your post automatically on both sites. After the process of unlinking both accounts, your previous shared posts will remain the same on both platforms, and this delinking will only ensure that there is no auto-sharing happening on these accounts in the future.

Finally, delinking your Facebook from Instagram will also remove Facebook Messenger, which you have integrated with Instagram. Because of this, you will not be able to use Facebook’s much-touted cross-app.

Steps to unlink Facebook and Instagram

  • First, log in to the Instagram website and select the profile, which is present in the top right-hand corner. Then, from the drop-down menu, click on settings.
  • Then, on the settings page of Instagram, click on the account center, which is on the left side.
  • On this page, we will see that our Facebook and Instagram are linked together. Then select the account and profile that are starting the process of delinking Facebook and Instagram.
  • On the other hand, we can click on the account that we want to unlink.
  • After this, in the pop-up window, click on “remove from account center.”

Now on our screen, we will see a warning message that says if we unlink our account, it will disconnect all the experience from Facebook and Instagram. So ignore it and press the continue button.

Finally, we can confirm our selection by clicking on the remove button to unlink both Facebook and Instagram. So it’s all about unlinking. Your Facebook and Instagram accounts are disconnected. Meanwhile, these steps are all the same as for iOS as well.
