How To Remove Yourself From A Facebook Ad Account

Have you ever been flooded with an endless stream of advertisements on Facebook? I certainly have. It’s annoying to encounter ads for items or services you couldn’t care less about. Fortunately, Facebook offers the possibility to opt out of an ad account, allowing you to take back command over the content appearing in your news feed. In this guide, I’ll walk you through each step required to detach yourself from a Facebook ad account.

Step 1: Access Facebook Settings

To begin, log in to your Facebook account and click on the small arrow at the top-right corner of the screen. This will open a drop-down menu. From the menu, select “Settings” to access your Facebook account settings.

Step 2: Navigate to Ads Settings

Within the settings page, scroll down until you find the section labeled “Ads.” Click on “Ads” to open the ad preferences page.

Step 3: Manage Ad Preferences

On the ad preferences page, you will see various options related to ads on Facebook. One of these options is “Ad settings.” Click on “Ad settings” to manage your ad preferences.

Step 4: Remove Yourself from an Ad Account

Within the “Ad settings” page, you will find different categories of ad preferences. Look for the category labeled “Your interests” and click on “More” to expand the options.

Scroll down until you find the section labeled “Advertisers and Businesses.” This section will contain a list of ad accounts that you are connected to. To remove yourself from a specific ad account, simply click on the “X” button next to the account name.

After clicking the “X” button, Facebook will present you with a confirmation dialog. Confirm your decision by clicking on “Remove” to remove yourself from the ad account.

Step 5: Review your Changes

Once you have removed yourself from the ad account, you can review the changes you have made. Scroll down to the section labeled “Your ad preferences” to see the updated list of ad accounts you are connected to.

It is important to note that removing yourself from an ad account does not guarantee that you will no longer see ads from that advertiser. However, it does help Facebook to better understand your preferences and show you ads that are more relevant to you.


Removing yourself from a Facebook ad account is a simple and effective way to regain control over the ads you see in your news feed. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can customize your ad preferences and ensure that you are seeing content that is more relevant to your interests. So go ahead, take control of your Facebook experience and say goodbye to irrelevant ads!
