Whether you've had a Facebook profile for a few weeks, many years or anywhere in between, it's a good idea to review your profile now and then to make sure it still contains all the information and media you want and nothing you don't want. Reviewing your profile and making the necessary adjustments ensures that your profile is up-to-date and shows your best self.
When you're reviewing your profile, it's common to find a photo or two that you no longer want on display. Maybe the lighting wasn't quite right or it was taken after getting a bad haircut. However, there are times -- perhaps after a breakup or a difficult time in your life -- when you may decide to delete an entire album of photos or videos.
To do this, all it takes is some simple navigation around your profile. Follow our step-by-step guide to delete an album from your Facebook profile.
Keep in mind that If you choose to delete an album, all photos and videos from that album will be deleted permanently, and you will not be able to cover them. You may want to save any media you don't want to lose completely to your phone or desktop before you delete the album from your profile.
Facebook customer service is always here to help if you have any questions about deleting an album from your profile.
How to delete an entire photo album from Facebook:
1. Log into Facebook.
2. Go to your profile and click Photos, then click Albums.
3. Find the album you want to delete and click on it.
4. Click the three dots in the top-right corner of the album and click Delete album.
5. A box will pop up to ask if you're sure you want to delete the album and remind you that all media in the album will be deleted. If you're sure, click Delete Album.
