There are several purposes for having a Facebook page, from running fan pages to business pages; it allows for functionalities you can’t access ordinarily with your personal account. For this reason, you might find yourself as an admin or any of the other roles on pages that have outlived their purposes. Removing yourself from such pages can be pretty tricky but possible.
You can ask other page admins to remove you or do it yourself to remove yourself from Facebook. You must not be the only admin on the page to do it yourself; else, you’ll need to delete the page entirely. In the page’s settings, go to the “Page Roles” tab, click on “Edit”, and click “Remove”. You’ll be subsequently removed from such a page.
Facebook also incorporated the “New Pages Experience” for business pages, giving them a new look and added functionalities. They work pretty much like any other Facebook page with options moved around, and you can also remove yourself from such page when you want to.
In this article, we’ll go onto step-by-step details on the methods of removing yourself from a Facebook page and how you can remove yourself from the New Pages experience of Facebook.
Facebook pages give you added benefits like having no limit to the number of fans and friends following your content and using the Premiere feature for video content. It’s particularly useful for businesses with the tools they get to access in terms of campaigns and metrics on how well their businesses fair in the online space.
All of these functionalities usually require two or more people running the page, which is why they’re roles for Facebook pages created. These roles include an admin, an editor, or a moderator. Any of the persons filling these roles can remove themselves from the page. There are two methods to use in removing yourself from a Facebook Page.
Facebook allows a page to have multiple admins for easier management. If there are two or more admins on a page and you’re part of them, you can ask another admin to remove you from the page. This approach might be the easiest for some people as there’s nothing other to do than ask and wait for removal.
If you’re too shy to ask other admins or just want to leave discreetly, this second method is for you. It’s relatively easy and can be done in these few steps.
- When signed in to your Facebook account, click on “Pages” in Facebook’s menu.
- Click on the page you want to remove yourself from and select “Settings” in the page’s menu.

You can only remove yourself from a page if you’re not the only admin left managing the page. Facebook does not allow a page without an administrator, and if you must go at all costs, it means you’ll have to delete the page or find someone else to make an admin before leaving.
