How to Remove or Hide Facebook Contacts On iPhone

Removing Facebook Contacts from iPhone

One of the easiest ways to remove or hide the Facebook contacts from appearing in your Contacts is to turn off a switch you’ll find in Facebook settings. To do this:

  • Open the Settings app
  • Tap on Facebook
  • Under “Allow These Apps to User Your Account”, turn off the switch for Contacts

Go back to your Phone app → Contacts and refresh the contacts list. All those Facebook contacts should be gone now.

Hide Facebook Contacts From Showing Up (Groups)

So we come to the next method which is usually considered a step backward because of its implementation in iOS 7 (more on that later).

You have these Groups that you can create and manage. Controlling the groups (and their visibility on the Contacts app) was very easy with iOS 6. With iOS 7, it gets a couple of steps extra.

  • Open the Phone app and tap on contacts
  • Now, tap on “Groups” link on the top-right
  • Do you see a “Facebook Contacts” group. You have to turn this off. (Uncheck)
  • Tap on Hide All Contacts  first. Then tap on all other groups that you want  to see. Don’t tap on the Facebook group. That’s it. (In iOS 6, tapping used to toggle check/uncheck. The implementation is kind of strange in iOS 7).
