How to Hide Likes on Facebook Posts and Pages

Hides the likes and reactions count from Facebook.

Facebook is one of the few apps that doesn’t need an introduction. Though Facebook is familiar to most of us, there are so many hidden features available in the platform that is still unexplored. Features like Lock Profile, Dark Mode, and so on are not explored by the user. One such feature is the Hide Likes feature on Facebook. It helps to share pictures, videos, articles, links, and many more. Similar to Instagram’s Hide Like feature, you can hide likes on Facebook too. You can hide the like counts if you don’t want other users to view how people react to your posts.

Alternate Way to Hide Likes on Facebook

For Chrome browsers, there are a lot of extensions available on the Chrome Web Store to hide likes on Facebook. But, we don’t recommend using those extensions as they are violating your privacy. To hide likes using the extensions, you have to provide your Facebook account details. It is not a wise decision to disclose your Facebook credentials to third-party extensions.

If you want to hide likes from Facebook posts, these are the possible ways. Change your Hide Likes settings based on your preferences. By using these methods, you can also hide likes from your Facebook Business page. If you have any difficulties while using the Facebook platform, let us know in the comment below.
