Block Unwanted Game Requests on Facebook

Updated on May 30, 2015

Dear readers, in recent times, with internet facility getting cheaper and faster, people are being more addicted to online gaming. As observed, most played games are of mainly three types: Strategy games, Simulation games, and Board games.

Facebook: Favorite for Online Gaming

With easy connectivity to other players, Facebook games are becoming one of the main attractions for passing time by playing games online through mobile phones, laptops, personal computers, and other such devices. The main reason being, while people run out of virtual life, or need to get extra virtual cash for the games, it is easier to ask for from the people on your friends list. Some games even have such scenarios, where one has to get help from other players by sending them requests. However, such requests can only be sent to people on one’s friends list, even to those who haven’t played those games. As the number of players increase, so increases the number of game requests. To users, who don’t play games, these notifications are very annoying. Unfortunately, most of the users do not know how to get rid of such notifications, even when the solution is available.

Let's Get Rid of Unwanted Game Requests

Hence today, I am sharing this article to help all such Facebook users to know how to get rid it through few simple steps, as shown below.

Step – 1: Login to Facebook, using your Username and Password

Step – 2:

Once the page fully loads, find “Apps” on the left hand side bar on the home page of your Facebook page. Click on “More” located beside it.

Step – 3:

Now, Apps page is loaded, where you can see all the applications that you have accepted and accessed. On the top right on the centre of the page, find “Settings” and click on it.

Step – 4:

As you click, it will redirect you to Application Settings page. On the left hand side bar, find “Blocking” as shown in the image, and click on it.

Step – 5:

Now we are on the page where we can block various things. Eg. App Invites, Event Invites and so on. Find “Block Apps” with a text box to its right.

Step – 6:

In the text box, type the name of the game which you don’t want to see any requests or updates from, and select it from the list.

Step – 7:

Now you will be able to see the game in the blocked list. Rest assured, in future if you wish to play the game and want to get the game requests from any particular games, you simply have to click on “Unblock” link given beside every game on the list.

Note: In most cases, you just have to type first few letters or words of name of the game, and it will automatically appear in the drop down list, from where you can directly select, without typing in the whole name.

Quick Recap

Let's Try for Another one

Let’s try it again, now for a different game. Once you find “Block Apps” text box, type the name of the game, and select it from the drop down list. Once you select it, the game is automatically listed below the text box, in the list of blocked games along with a link of “Unblock” beside each game.

Now, we are Good to Go!

Once, these simple steps are followed, you will get rid of all the future requests, that you don’t wish to receive.

Please share, “how useful it was for you?” And “what other such aspects you want to know about Facebook or any such other websites?”, and we shall try to come up with as many such solutions as possible.

      It's really annoying when my friends send me game request. But I never tried to block these games (actually i don't have idea on how to do it). What I did is just ignore game request notifs. Thanks to your hub, I know now what's the next thing to do.
