Block Facebook game requests

3 steps to block Facebook game requests

Facebook game requests – they’re annoying. One minute, you think you’ve blocked them. The next day, there are more Facebook game requests coming in from friends. Today, we’re going to show you how to block Facebook game requests in 3 simple steps – forever.

Why block Facebook game requests?

As we mentioned, game requests are flat-out annoying. Not to mention, they can consume a lot of your time. For example, if you have Facebook installed on your mobile device (who doesn’t), whenever you receive a Facebook game request, your phone buzzes.

This can lead to a loss of productivity because you stop what you’re doing to check your notifications, only to find out that it’s just a game request and not an important message.

Instead of letting Facebook game requests rule your life, be proactive and block Facebook game requests.
