    If You Are Posting Using Tapatalk

    Recently, as I've been moderating the Coffee Forum, I've noticed that at the end of many posts, the words
    Sent from my SCH-I605, iPhone (or something similar) using Tapatalk show up at the bottom of each post.

    When those words appear at the end of each post, it looks like an advertisement for whatever model phone or tablet you're using. This is basically SPAM, and SPAM is something we try to avoid on the Coffee Forum.

    Apparently, there is a box that you need to uncheck in your phone or tablet's settings. Other Forum Members have told me it's there somewhere in the settings and it's very easy to find. Once they unchecked the box, the extra wording stopped appearing at the end of each post that they made to the Coffee Forum.

    You need to open the Tapatalk app, and then go into the Tapatalk settings and make the change for the signature line.

    open Tapatalk app
    click settings
    scroll down to "Tapatalk Signature"
    click
    select NONE

    If you're posting to the Coffee Forum using Tapatalk, please visit your phone/tablet's settings, and do whatever you need to do to turn that message off.

    I'd appreciate your help with this.

    Thanks,
    Rose

    If anyone knows how to turn the Tapatalk message off of a phone or tablet, please post the instructions here.

    I've received private messages asking me how to do it, but I don't use Tapatalk, and I don't know how to tell people how to access the user settings on their phones or tablets. Somewhere in the settings, there is a box that you need to uncheck to stop the Tapatalk advertisement from appearing at the end of each post.

    Having the step-by-step instructions would be very helpful.

    Thanks,
    Rose

    Thanks, Topher!

    Was there a box that you needed to uncheck in the settings?

    Hi Everyone,

    Friendly reminder: This is how to turn off the Tapatalk message so it doesn't show up at the end of all of your posts.

    If you're using Tatatalk, please be sure the Tapatalk signature is turned off.

    Thanks,

    Rose

    I Googled it, and this is a very basic answer to your question:

    I've recently received several messages asking me how to turn off the tapatalk signature. Topher explained it nicely. Just go into the phone's settings, and find the option for tapatalk signature, and select none. It's very simple to do.

    Please be aware that when you allow the tapatalk signature to appear on the bottom of your posts to the Forum, it looks like an advertisement for whatever model phone or tablet you're using. This is basically SPAM, and SPAM is something we try to avoid on the Coffee Forum.
