Steps to Address Spam on Facebook

Spam involves contacting people with unwanted content or requests. This includes sending bulk messages, excessively posting links or images to people's timelines, and sending friend requests to people you don't know personally.

Spam can spread by clicking unsafe links or installing malicious software. Scammers can sometimes gain access to people's Facebook accounts, which are then used to send spam.

Secure Your Account

If you can log in to your account, we recommend changing your password. If you can't get into your account, you can secure it.

If someone is repeatedly posting something you think is spam, consider unfriending, blocking, or reporting that person.

Review Account Activity and Remove Any Spam

  • Check your login history for suspicious logins.
  • Run a review of your recent posts and likes.
  • Check your activity log and delete any unwanted actions.
  • Check your installed apps and games and delete anything you don't trust.
  • Delete any photos, posts, Pages, groups, or events that you didn't create.
