Facebook’s Shake to Report Feature

If you’re a Facebook user, then chances are you’ve seen this feature in action. You may not be aware that it exists, or even how to turn it off. In this article, I’ll explain what the shake to report feature is and how it works so that next time you can get rid of it once and for all.

Facebook Shake To Report Feature

The shake-to-report feature was first introduced by Facebook back in 2014 when they launched their new app called Messenger Lite (also known as “WhatsApp Lite”). The idea behind this new tool was simple: if someone who uses your phone calls or texts you while using WhatsApp on another device (such as an iPhone), then they’ll see a notification telling them there’s something urgent they should look at right away—and clicking through will launch their default messaging app until the issue has been resolved—usually within just one minute!

To turn off the shake to report feature on Facebook, follow these steps:

  • Go to your Facebook settings and click on Privacy.
  • Click on Shake to Report at the bottom of this page and then click Remove next to it (the “Remove” button will be grayed out).


When you’ve turned off the shake to report feature, you are no longer able to shake your phone to report something. This is especially useful if someone has threatened or harassed you and they could end up getting reported by accident.
