How do I remove my Facebook information from Scribd?

If you used the quick link blue Facebook login button when you signed up on Scribd or later linked the two profiles together but no longer wish for Scribd to have access to your Facebook information, you can unlink to the profiles in a few simple steps.

 

First off though, you'll need to get to the correct page. So before we get into the nitty gritty of unlinking the two accounts, head on over to the Account Settings for your Scribd profile. To get there, just click the icon in the upper righthand corner and select the "Account Settings" option from the menu that appears. 

If all you've been using is the Facebook option, you need to create a password to use on Scribd before unlinking the two profiles. To do this, click the "Set Scribd Password" link in your Account Settings to enter a password unique to your Scribd account:

Make sure that you also update your email address using the "Edit Profile" link if you don't see an email address on file for your Scribd account on this page! If for any reason you lose or forget your password in the future, the email address is what you need to be able to use the automated reset tool we provide. 

Once you have a password attached to the account, or if you already have a password attached to the account because you've logged in via your username and password before, you can unlink the two profiles by clicking the 'Disconnect' option under the blue 'Logged in with Facebook' button. 

We'll just add another reminder, make sure if you're disconnecting the two profiles that you have an email address attached to your Scribd account first!

Once you've unlinked the accounts, you won't be able to log on through the Facebook button after that. If you click that button after the two are unlinked and you haven't relinked them, you'll create a new account in the system. Just be careful with that since we don't want you to end up under the wrong account without a premium membership you may have purchased. 

 

If you miss the quick one touch button, login with your username and password, go to your Account Settings once again, and select 'Connect to Facebook' to get the two linked together once more.
