Facebook has recently begun to autoplay videos in the News Feed and there is concern this could cause people to max out their data plans and have to incur overage charges. Facebook hasn’t commented yet that we can see but there is enough noise in the news to warrant protecting yourself. Fortunately, the fix is quick and easy!
Here’s how you can set the Facebook autoplay feature to wi-fi only or completely off on your iPhone or Android device:
- If you’re an iPhone user, tap your “Settings” button and then scroll down and click “Facebook.” From there, click “Settings,” “Auto-play,” and then choose “Wi-Fi only” or “Off.”
- If you’re an Android user, bring up the Facebook app and go to your account settings. Click “App Settings,” and then choose “Auto-play only on Wi-Fi” or “Off.”
That’s all there is to it! Make sure to make the adjustments on your tablets as well and you’ll avoid costly overage charges.
