Disconnect Twitter Account from Ask.fm [HowTo]

Sunday, November 18, 2012 Shelsea 88 Comments


Post Updated: January 30, 2015.

If you're stuck with your Ask.fm account connected to Twitter - or whatever other social network - then you probably used it to sign-up to Ask.fm when you first created your account there.

This can be really annoying because it won't let you use your Twitter account for another Ask.fm account, and simply won't leave your Twitter account alone even after you hit the Revoke Access button on Twitter settings.

I know the struggle and I'll tell you how to disconnect your account from Ask.fm in a few easy steps. Let's get started!


Disconnect Your Account from Ask.fm


You can use these steps to disconnect any social network from your Ask.fm account. This is not exclusively for disconnecting Twitter accounts.

  • Step 1: Login to your Ask.fm account.


  • Step 2: On the top navigation bar, click on Settings and then Profile.
  • Step 3: Scroll down and click on Change Password.


  • Step 4: Set a new password and hit Save when you're done.
    This will set an individual password for your Ask.fm account, unlinking your Twitter password from it.
  • Step 5: Go to Services and click Remove Connection from under your Twitter account.



And that's it. Your account should now be disconnected from Ask.fm. Share your experience and leave a comment below!

  7. i dont have an option to then delete my account?

    ReplyDelete
  8. What do you mean by "delete my account"?

    If you're talking about deleting your ask.fm account, you have an option to disable it on Settings > Profile. Scroll all the way down and you'll find a bold grey link on the bottom right of the page to disable your ask.fm account.



    If this is not what you're talking about, please specify in order for me to help you.

  21. You can try revoking the access of ask.fm to your twitter account on Twitter Settings, though I've tried that and it didn't solve my problem.

  25. Can you help me, I have a prob. Well i deactivated my twitter acct and my ask fm is linked to it and the askfm is still not deactivated until now. How can it be removed?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Go to "Settings" on the top right corner of the Ask.fm site, then go on the "Profile" tab, scroll all the down until you find "Password". There should be something saying "Change password". Click there and create the password.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Go on "Settings" on the top right corner of the Ask.fm site, then go on the "Services" tab. There must be the Twitter connection, if your Twitter acc is still connected to your ask.fm acc, there should be a link saying "Remove connection".

    If there's not, then try to reactivate your twitter acc and directly revoke ask.fm's access to it by going on "Settings" and then "Apps", scroll down until you find ask.fm and revoke access.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Omgggggggg, thanksss !

    ReplyDelete
  29. I did everything but I'm not seeing a remove account option. Help?

    ReplyDelete
  30. That didn't work for me! :( I changed my password on my Ask.fm, then went to services, and all it had was a link to my twitter! What should I do?

    ReplyDelete
  31. this didnt help and my twitter still won't link to my ask.fm

    ReplyDelete
  32. but what if i dictivated my twitter account? and i cant sign in to my ask fm account without signing in to my twitter account? and as i said my twitter account is dictivated and i cant get it back. any help?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, this is not about linking your twitter acc to your ask.fm, it's about the opposite: unlinking.

    ReplyDelete
  34. As said in the tutorial, to disconnect your twitter acc from ask.fm all you have to do is going to your ask.fm Settings, on the tab "Profile" and create a password for your ask.fm acc. If you still can't disconnect twitter this way, all you gotta do is revoking ask.fm's access to your twitter acc by changing this on twitter Settings on the "Applications" tab. If you deactivated your twitter acc and can't get it back then I can't help you. The only ways you can disconnect ask.fm from twitter is whether directly in ask.fm as the tutorial shows, or on twitter by revoking its' access.

  35. I deactivated my old ask.fm but it was connected to my twitter. Now my twitter doesn't wanna connect to my new ask.fm

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's because technically your twitter account is still connected to your old ask.fm account which you deactivated. You have to reactivate that account and disconnect your twitter from it in order to connect it to your new ask.fm account.

    ReplyDelete
  37. now that i disconnected it from my twitter i still cant change my username?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ask.fm doesn't allow you to change your username.

    ReplyDelete
  39. for example, my username on twitter is @Abcde which the first letter is capital, is it possible if I connect my twitter on ask.fm my username would be @abcde (on ask.fm) , i mean do ask.fm allows the capitalization of letters change? because I know someone, I'm confused if it's really him or if it's his real acc on ask.fm because his username on twitter and on ask.fm is the same except only to the capitalization of some letters. Example his username on twitter is @UserName, then what I see on ask.fm is @username. Thanks! I will really appreciate if u answer! i really need to know. (I can't ask him personally for this question. lol)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Just like on twitter, you can use capital letters on ask.fm as well. Though, also like on twitter, the use of capital letters won't mean that there can be two different usernames with that difference; for example, there can't be one @Abcde and one @abcde, they're the same person because the username is the same, the only change is the capital letter which does /not/ mean they're two different people. The thing is, if that person you know used twitter to sign up to ask.fm, his ask.fm username should be the same as on twitter (with the capital letters), though he may have created an actual ask.fm account and chose not to use the capital letters.


    Meaning that it could be the same person indeed, since he could have used twitter to create his account (which would mean he'd have the same username as on twitter) or he may have created his account directly on ask.fm and just didn't use the capital letters. The only way you have to be sure of this is by, indeed, asking him personally or through an anonymous question on ask.fm.

  41. i don't have a revoke access link under the connect with twitter thing. what do i do?

    ReplyDelete
  42. If you see "Connect with twitter", you obviously won't have a link to disconnect it since it's not connected yet in the first place. And please note that "revoke access" is something on twitter, not ask.fm.

  43. thank you so much wow, worked perfectly

    ReplyDelete
  44. THANK YOU SO MUCCCCCCCCCCCCCH

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank You so much :)

  46. Remove connection isnot found

    ReplyDelete
  47. what if you forgot you previous ask.fm account and you decided to create a new one and connect to twitter but it doesnt allow as a account(the previous one) was already connected

    ReplyDelete
  48. You would have to recover your old ask.fm account's password and disconnect your twitter account from it. If you don't remember your old account's username and are unable to recover the password, try contacting Twitter's support about this issue and maybe they can help you.

  50. I just tried this but the 'Remove connection' part isnt there?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Try repeating the steps carefully. It should work.

    ***

    - Solutions depending on what you want to do. -


    1. If you only want to stop Twitter from posting your Ask.fm answers, you can revoke the access of Ask.fm by going to 'Settings > Apps' on Twitter.


    2. If you want to use your Twitter account on a new Ask.fm account, revoking access will not help you. If after repeating these steps you are still unable to remove the connection to your Twitter account, send an email to the Ask.fm team about it and they might be able to help you.

  74. What if I already forgot my acc in ask fm?

    ReplyDelete
  75. In the context of this tutorial you should be able to login to your Ask.fm account through Twitter. If you were using an email to access your account you should be able to retrieve the login information through the "Forgot Password" option when trying to login.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Ugghh. Finally ~ THANKSSS.

    ReplyDelete
  77. this actually doesn't work for me :( I made a new ask.fm account and tried linking it to my twitter but it gives me an error saying the account is already sociated with an ask.fm. Thing is I dont want that old one anymore cause I dont want that username anymore and I cant change it. It's really annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  78. It's not surprising that it's not working for you. To use your Twitter account in your new Ask.fm account you have to disconnect it from the old Ask.fm first. To disconnect it from your old Ask.fm account, login to this account and do the steps above; then connect your Twitter account to the new Ask.fm.


    If you can't access your old Ask.fm account I'm afraid you won't be able to connect your Twitter account to your new one, since it has to be disconnected from the other one first.
