how to separate duolingo from facebook (and keep it separate)?

I clicked on the settings section on duolingo and selected disconnect from facebook. however, it doesn't seem to save. when I log in back to duolingo using by non-facebook password, it appears that duolingo has been automatically connected to facebook again, even though I clearly disconnected it before! Can someone help me solve this problem please?

I've heard from several people that they are afraid to connect DL to FB because they don't think they will be able to disconnect them. I hope this gets resolved soon!

Also, please edit your post and let the tech team know what operating system and browser you're using. (For example, I'm using Windows7/Firefox). Thanks! ^_^


Thank you :)


I see from looking at your profile that you seem to have successfully disconnected from Facebook. I'll post this anyway in case anyone else stumbles across this post looking for help with the same issue.

The trick to disconnecting a FB account from Duo is that you have to click "save changes" to get it to be persistent. Unfortunately, just disconnecting from FB doesn't activate the "save changes" button, so you have to do an extra step. Navigate to the profile settings tab, and click the button to disconnect from Facebook. After doing so, and before leaving the page, make a minor edit to any of the "full name," "location," or "bio" fields, which will activate the "save changes" button. Once it's clickable (it will change from gray to green), click that button to save your changes. You should now be permanently disconnected from Facebook.
