  2. Sign in to your Facebook account from a Web browser and navigate to your profile page.

  3. Click “Photos” and scroll down to the section labeled Photos and Videos of You. This section displays all of the photos in which you're tagged.

  4. Click on the photo that you want to untag to open it in the the photo viewer.

  5. Mouse over the photo in the photo viewer and click the “options” button that appears. Select “Report/Remove Tag.”

  6. Check “I want to remove the tag” and click “Continue.” The tag is removed immediately and you're presented with the option to complete a survey about why you untagged the photo; click “No” if you don't want to participate.

    Controlling Future Tags

  7. Click the arrow in the upper right corner of your Facebook homepage and select “Privacy Settings.”
