How to block people from inviting you to Facebook events

Facebook Logo

Never had a friend or someone continuously inviting you to parties and all that kind of events having place in the opposite part of the world and in which you’re not interested at all?

Did you kindly ask to these guys and to their friends not to invite you anymore and they didn’t listen to you?

Well, it is possible to prevent them from sending you event invitations, without the need of blocking them.

Simply access your Facebook account and:

  • Click on Settings -> Privacy Settings
  • Under Block Lists, click on Edit Your Lists
  • Under Block Event Invites, add the names of your spammer friends

Now enjoy your Facebook account without spammers.

Hope this helps. Thanks to Adrian for the suggestion.

  3. That setting applies to the Events box that you place on your profile (telling friends what events you are attending). Placing someone under these settings just prevents them from viewing this box (if you’ve added it), and doesn’t do what we all want– prevent them from inviting you.

  4. This does not work – you have it backwards – this feature is to who NOT to send YOUR invites to.

  6. Have you tried:

    Privacy > Block Lists > Block event invites

  7. Was getting events from friend on Facebook. Removed him as friend. Blocked him. I still get his events. Followed your directions above, except his profile can no longer can be found. He’ll be the one person attending the event, but no profile appears. But he can still send events that I’ll never attend. I’d like to TRON his ass!

  10. yeah, how about blocking inappropriate events from people I don’t know or aren’t friended with. people (spammers) I don’t know are inviting me to download a free music program – illegal and unwanted! Why do I have to block everyone to make this work?
