How to stop Facebook Video auto play feature

Scrolling Facebook can be slow, and even slower when it is trying to auto play video as you scroll your news feed. Here is a quick guide of how to turn off the auto play feature for Facebook Video.

For computers:
Go to your options drop-down menu in the top right.
Click “Settings”
Select the “Videos” link on the left.
Turn the “Auto-Play Videos” from “ON” to “OFF”

For Phones and tablet apps:
You can adjust your auto-play settings to On, Wi-Fi only or Off. If auto-play is On, the data used depends on the amount of time you spend watching a video. If you scroll past an auto-play video in News Feed, your phone will use less data than if you stop to watch it for a longer period of time. If auto-play is set to Wi-Fi only, no data will be used.

To adjust your auto-play settings:

Android

Open the Facebook app
Tap your phone’s menu button
Tap Settings
Scroll down and tap Video Auto-play
Choose an option

iPhone and iPad

Go to your phone or tablet’s settings
Scroll down and tap Facebook
Tap Settings
