How To Stop Facebook from Automatically Playing Videos

So! You’re just killing time on Facebook, scrolling through people’s posts and updates; people’s quotes and pictures of inspiration when, out of nowhere, a video starts playing in your feed. You didn’t ask Facebook to play it, it just started playing. How annoying is that!

Here’s how to turn it off.


On your computer

  • Go to Settings
  • Click on General
  • Click on Video (near the bottom)
  • on Auto-Play Video, turn it from On to Off
  • On your Mobile Device

  • Go to Settings
  • Click on General
  • Unclick Auto-Play Videos on Wi-Fi only
  • Although it won’t stop them completely on your mobile device, it will make it do it doesn’t eat your data minutes when not connected to a local wifi account.

    As technology changes and more updates happen to Facebook, this may be a temporary fix but, in the meantime, it’s something.
