How to Turn Off Admin Assist on Facebook Groups

Facebook’s Admin Assist feature was designed to help group administrators save time by automating certain tasks. However, some admins may find that automated actions don’t align with how they want their group to function.

How to Turn Off Admin Assist on Facebook Groups

In such cases, turning off Admin Assist entirely is the best solution. This guide will explore how to disable Admin Assist on your Facebook group, as well as provide context around why should you turn it off.

Why Should You Turn Off Admin Assist?

While Admin Assist can be a useful tool, there are several reasons why a group admin may want to disable it:

  • Since Admin Assist operates based on pre-set rules, the automated actions may not always align with the guidelines of a particular group.
  • When Admin Assist automatically approves or declines members/content, admins will not know the reasoning behind those actions.
