How to Unlink Udemy from Facebook
Your boss needs you to get some specific training on a new skill that will help you get a promotion within your department, so he has you register for a course on Udemy. Rather than add to the hundreds of usernames and passwords that you currently juggle, you decide to sign up using Facebook, but now that the course is over, you no longer want the accounts linked.
How do you unlink Udemy from Facebook? Udemy can be unlinked from Facebook by logging into Facebook and going to:
Apps and websites
Check the box on the far right of the Udemy row
Click the blue “Remove” button
By following the above steps within the Facebook app, the Udemy student should no longer receive notifications, alerts, or updates regarding activity regarding his or her Udemy account.
How to Unlink Udemy from Facebook on Desktop or Laptop
The Udemy student can unlink his or her account from Facebook on a desktop or laptop using a series of straightforward steps. First, the Udemy student will need to go to www.facebook.com and log into Facebook using his or her Facebook login credentials.
Once logged in and on the Facebook homepage, the user will want to look toward the upper right-hand corner of the screen on the blue taskbar ribbon. At the far right of this ribbon, the user will notice a small, downward-pointing triangle. This is the necessary icon.
After clicking on this downward-pointing triangle, a menu will become visible with a variety of choices. Near the very bottom of this menu, just above the “Log Out” option, there will be a selection titled “Settings.” The user needs to click on this “Settings” option.
Apps and Websites
After entering the “Settings” portal, there will be a menu on the left-hand side of the screen. This menu will be divided into four sections. At the top of the fourth section, there will be a selection titled “Apps and Websites.” The user needs to click on this “Apps and Websites” option.
Check the Box on the Far Right of the Udemy Row
Near the top of the “Apps and Websites” page, the user will notice three columns: Active, Expired and Removed. Users should have the “Active” page visible by default, but if not, he or she needs to click on the “Active” column to ensure that the correct information is visible.
Once the active apps and websites appear, the user will need to search for Udemy. The list is not in alphabetical order, so the time it takes to identify Udemy will vary, depending on how many apps and websites the user is subscribed to through Facebook. The user may need to click the “See More” option if Udemy is not immediately present.
After locating the Udemy logo in the active “Apps and Websites” list, the user will notice a box at the far right-hand side of the row. He or she needs to make sure this box is checked.
Click the Blue “Remove” Button
By checking the box at the end of the Udemy row, the user will notice a blue “Remove” button near the upper right-hand corner of the page become illuminated. He or she needs to click this button.
After clicking the “Remove” button, the user will be presented with a disclaimer. This will let the user know that his or her Udemy account and activity may be deleted. It will prompt the user to check with the Udemy website to confirm what personal information he or she wants Udemy to keep on file after the account is unlinked from Facebook. There will also be an option to have any previously posted Udemy information removed from the user’s Facebook timeline.
Once the user is comfortable with all options regarding his or her Udemy account, he or she will want to click the blue “Remove” button at the bottom of the disclaimer. This will unlink Udemy from Facebook, ceasing any notifications, alerts, or updates that the user had previously been receiving via Facebook.
