Integrating multiple social media platforms goes a long way in saving time while posting the same update to all or some of them. This is the main reason behind Instagram allowing users to link their profile with Facebook account. It helps people to share Instagram posts to their Facebook account or page automatically while publishing on Instagram. In case this didn’t prove to be useful for you and you would like to disconnect Facebook from Instagram account then this guide is all you need. So, let’s get to it.

Disconnect Facebook From Instagram Account

If you are using a business account on Instagram then it is not possible to unlink your Facebook account as business profile picks up information from your Facebook page. So, the first step for business account owners is to switch to the personal profile. If you are already using a personal account then you can skip this part.

Switch to Personal Account

1. Launch the Instagram app and go to your profile screen by tapping on the profile icon at the bottom right. Under your profile tap on the gear icon which is placed next to Edit Profile button as of now on the iOS app. On Android tap on the 3 dots at the top right of the screen.

It is now time to disconnect Facebook.
