How to remove tag on Facebook

We know that tagging is used for showing whom we have mentioned with us. If we tag a friend in our status update, anyone can go to our friend's profile by clicking on their names. Our status update will also be shown up on that friend's timeline.

Sometimes our friends tag us in unflattering photos or mention us in stories that we don't share. If we are not happy with the post in which we are tagged, we can remove the tag from the post. We can also remove someone who has been tagged in our post.

These are the following steps used to remove tag from the post:

Desktop: When we are tagged in a post.

1) Login to the Facebook

Firstly, open the Facebook official website by pasting the https://www.facebook.com/ in the address bar of our preferred web browser. If we are already logged into Facebook, we will directly reach the News Feed page. But if we are not login, then we have to enter the username, phone number, and email address, followed by the password in the given tab.
