How to Reset Facebook Games

Updated April 17, 2017

Facebook is a social networking website where users can connect with their families and friends. One way you can do this is by playing games with one another. Whether you want to reset your character to play with a new friend -- or you simply want to start all over again -- you can reset your Facebook games to begin with a brand new character. The only way you can do this is by reinstalling the application.

Log-in to your Facebook account.

Click "Account," followed by "Privacy Settings."

Locate the "Applications" subheading and click "Edit your settings."

Click "Edit Settings" beside the game you wish to reset, followed by "Remove Application."

Click the search bar at the very top of the page. Type in the application name and click it when the result appears on your screen.

Click "Allow" when asked to install the application. This reinstallation resets your information and the game itself.
