How to hide all your Like activity and Comment activity in Facebook


I consider Facebook a private place. I don’t like people looking trough my Likes, nor looking trough what I comment. In any case, Facebook do provide this functionality, but not many people use it since they don’t actually care about privacy. So, in case you care about it, here¿s how to hide your Like and Comment activity.

  • To hide the Like activity, go to your profile, and in any Like you made, click on the “X” at the end, and then click on “Hide all likes activity”.

  • To hide the Comment activity, go to your profile, and in any comment you made, click on the “X” at the end, and then click on “Hide all comment activity”.

And that’s it, Facebook will become more of a private place after that. And that’s completely recommended to do either you like privacy or not.

    This only hides it from you. People can still see everything you like/comment on your profile. I’ve tried many times…

    • TatoSgr says:

      Actually, it works, at least in my case, I used my secondary account to check my profile and the wall, while in my main account I was Liking pages to check if something appeared, and nothing.
      If you check your profile options at the end, you can see “Hidden Stories:”, followed by the Stories you have hidden, in this case: Things you like and Comment activity.
      Unlike your wall, this are not things hidden TO you, these are hidden BY you to everyone. It also applies to Recent Friends.
      And can be easily tested by just hidding an activity and then accessing from a secondary account and seeing how the post disappeared.

      you are right, same happened to me, although i pressed “hide like activity” it was still visible from othes at their news feed. solution: Profile–>edit profile–>activities and interests–>change “other pages you like” to be visible only to you–>done!

  2. knc says:

    Even if I disable that friends still see what I commented at their “Home” page. Does enyone know how to hide it?

  3. Bill says:

    Hi – the guidance on removing visibility into commenting activity doesn’t seem to apply to me. When I click on the ‘X’ next to a comment I’ve made, all it asks is “Delete Comment?” with the option Yes or “Cancel.” Please advise … if you’ve seen this, or if there is another way to manage this privacy. Thanks.

    How do u reactivate this feature- if u decide u don’t want to hide it after u have already hid it?

    • Javi says:

      I’ve been wondering that too… Doesn’t really look like it’s possible. :/ Tried going through all my settings but I couldn’t find any options for this.

    • Ahmed says:

      same problem here! i can’t see the things that i liked on my profile anymore but ppl can on there Home page!!! Help plzz

    • Kaset says:

      You can remove your hiding options at the end of your wall under “Edit Options”

  5. jb says:

    Thank you so much! This has been bugging me for months!!!

  6. dj says:

    Every time I search for info on how to hide my “like” and “comment” activity, the info is never helpful. I’ve tried this and the only option given was “Delete Comment?” Nothing else. I know it’s possible to hide my “like” and “comment” activity. I really wish I could find simple instructions (that actually WORK) on how to do it.  

    • TatoSgr says:

      You can’t hide comments already made in posts. You can only hide the activity in your wall.
      If it’s listed under “Recent Activity” you can hide it or show it again if you want, including wall post in another person’s wall.
      Again, ONLY if it’s listed under “Recent Activity”.

  7. snjflame says:

    what happens after clicking “hide all likes activity” ????

    • TatoSgr says:

      Any page you Like won’t appear in your wall. It will appear in your Interests and activities, but not directly in your wall, so people won’t know what you Liked recently.

      • Agnes Hubert says:

        but how do you undo it? can you reactive the appearance of what you “Like”? 

        • Javi says:

          I eventually figured out how to undo it. Just scroll to the bottom of your profile page and click on the “change settings” box to the right. I dunno why fb made it so difficult to undo things like that…

  8. DOCTO OCTO SAID BLEUGHGHGHGHGHG says:

    So how do you put it back on? I need help ASAP

  9. story says:

    unfortunately FB removed this feature with the new “upgrade” to the timeline layout.
     
    you can remove a few items from your own timeline (not newsfeed) and you can NOT hide any activity – including comments, likes, friend acceptances, etc as you could in the “old” days (just last july)
     
    If anyone figures out how to do this, please!!! it was nice not to have all that stuff show up in my timeline!

  10. Andy says:

    Can I hide the Pages I Like from my profile (timeline)?

    Yes, you can control who can see your profile (timeline) information inline as you edit your profile (timeline). While editing, look for the audience selector next to the “Other Pages You Like” field and select an audience.

    I need help.  Fast.  I have my account set up for permanent removal- not deactivation- in 14 days.
    The only way I know- I can get my account back- is if I can REMOVE ALL COMMENTS MADE- on a person’s wall- .  These are comments made under photos she took while playing a FB game.  How can  you remove all comments you have made to another persons wall?  I can find no way to do this.
     
    I think, maybe, if FB is making it so very difficult for us to do this- maybe they don’t want us to.  Took me a long time to figure out how to perm. remove my accounts- not just deactivate- and then, FB re-opened one of them… There is no privacy here… and I have had the new timeline from the beginning- .  It is makes it more difficult to know- just how open your wall is… 
     
    I just need to know CAN I REMOVE ALL COMMENTS MADE TO A PERSONS WALL??  IF SO– HOW??
     
    Thank you.

    big big big help! Thanx a lot!! :)

  13. UMAD says:

    I have a timeline, and one time my brother kept playing an app, and I think a virus appeared because my profile liked a bunch of pages, and I had no idea why. I unliked all the pages, but public and suscribers could still view some pages.

  14. Iosif says:

    I hid everything via “hide all likes activity” but it still shows up on other peoples wall. That sux!!!

    Also, when will the new timeline be implemented to everybody?

  15. Rebecca says:

    For the new timeline feature, try to get your friends to follow these instructions and it will protect your “likes” from those who participate. Good luck.

    I am really trying to privatize my facebook as much as possible, so if you don’t mind please do both of us a favor: Hover over my name above. In a few seconds you’ll see a box that says “Subscribed”. Hover over that, then go to “Comments and Likes” and unclick it. That will stop my posts and yours to me from showing up on the side bar for everyone to see, but most importantly it limits hackers from invading our profiles. If you repost this I will do the same for you. You’ll know I’ve acknowledged you because if you tell me that you’ve done it I’ll “like” it

      This is a hoax. All it does is keep each other from seeing these things. It does NOTHING to keep your account safe from hackers or remove updates from the sidebar for others to see.

  16. thetrystero says:

    how do you do this on the new facebook timeline?

  17. John Doe says:

    How do you keep yourself from popping up in the recent activity sidebar. I dont want ANY activity I do to be posted on that sidebar. Anyone?
