Stop Candy Crush Saga from annoying your friends Facebook timeline

Please_Stop_Candy_Crush_SagaI have a lot of friends who play Candy Crush Saga on Facebook. I really don’t play much anything and it is starting to be irritating to have a lot of automatic posts in my Facebook timeline about how my friends are doing with their game progress.

I don’t blame them, they probably don’t know that this is happening or maybe they totally ignore these messages as most of them are fans of the game 🙂

I prepared this short message you can share on your Facebook timeline so that your friends can disable the auto post functionality by Candy Crush Saga. A lot of your friends will really thank you:

Dear Facebook friend, although it’s great that you appreciate your great CANDY CRUSH SAGA game, several of us just don’t play it. We are also NOT interested on receiving updates on your behalf telling us how well you are doing with it. PLEASE follow these basic steps to disable CANDY CRASH SAGA to publish on your behalf and to stop allowing this app from harassing my timeline.

1) On Facebook go to: “Account Settings” (on the upper right side of your screen)
2) On the left side choose “Apps”.
3) On the App Setting list search for “Candy Crush Saga” and click on “Edit”.
4) Where it says: “This App can also: Post on your behalf” delete the option by clicking on the little “x” on the right.
5) Done!


Thank you, Your Facebook friend.

UPDATE: Also what you can do is totally block the application on your Facebook and you shouldn’t receive any updates from it.

UPDATE 2: For any other application or Game like:  Farm Heroes Saga which also started to spam my timeline you can enter the app page here and select “block” on the lower right corner of the page.

Please help me spread the word and share this on your favorite social networks below. Thanks!

  17. Hi Fernando, I couldn’t find “Posts on your behalf” under the edit section of the app account settings. It’s just not there. All of my apps has been marked as “only me” for visibility, and yet candycrush still managed to post on my timeline, ex. “XXX have just completed level XXX”. I do not know how to disable that. Could you please help?

      • Tried and have had it set to only me but friends that don’t play still get requests from me.

  19. I play candy crush through Facebook and there is now way to log out. If I delete my Facebook account completely will my candy crush game disappear as well? Meaning will my picture and status appear on my friends’ games?

  22. thanks so much. this has really been annoying me.

  23. Thank you so much – this has been driving me crazy! They are absolutely spamming!

  24. Thanks a mill!!!!!

  25. Comment

  26. I did this and then my candy crush app on my ipad says I need to connect to Facebook. Any suggestions?

  27. alternatively you can simply delete the update and then click to block and receive no more candy crush notifications and thus you do not risk offending your friends. its actually quicker and easier to do that than it is for your friends to change their candy crush settings.

    • How can I do this Zuzu? I do not have the app so I cannot delete the ‘update’ Messages can only be reported as spam, or hidden from my timeline. I just want all this rubbish candy crush to stop invading my space!

      • I would then install the app and then block it 😉

  28. Thanks! I had no idea CC spammed my friends that much. Everytime I succeeded a level I chose NOT to share it on Facebook.
