Using the platform’s broad reach, Facebook’s relatively new debut into the online dating sector matches you with potential mates in your neighborhood. Within the Facebook mobile app, you may access Facebook Dating from the main menu or the Dating tab.
Of course, you might not want the Dating icon shortcut tab taking up space on your smartphone’s screen if you are happily married, in a monogamous relationship, or are just not interested in meeting up with local hotties.
In that case, here’s how to delete the Dating shortcut from your daily FB view.
Removing the dating icon shortcut tab from Facebook
It is relatively easy to remove the Facebook Dating symbol tab from your phone’s home screen, whether or not you have activated Facebook Dating and created an account. Simply select “Not Now” from the “Dating” category in the shortcuts menu at the bottom of your screen.
The choice to “Remove” or “Keep” the dating icon will appear as a result. To remove it, click “Remove.”
The shortcut for the Facebook Dating feature can be removed to remove it from your Facebook screen. In the future, you can access Dating from the main Facebook menu by tapping the three horizontal lines at the bottom right of your screen.
Deleting the Dating shortcut and your Facebook Dating profile
The Facebook Dating profile you created inside the app is not deleted when you deactivate the shortcut tab. You must also deactivate or delete your Facebook Dating profile if you wish to remove the Facebook Dating icon shortcut tab because you no longer want to utilize the service; otherwise, other users will still be able to see your profile.
This is how you do it: On your iOS or Android phone, launch the Facebook app. At the bottom right of your screen, tap the three-line menu symbol. The main menu of Facebook will then appear.
From the main menu, tap on “Dating.” This will bring up your Facebook Dating settings.
