If you have ever been browsing through your Facebook wall, you may have noticed that videos will play by themselves, whether you pressed “Play” or not. This can slow down your computer significantly. However, you can actually turn this setting off. The result will be a faster Facebook browsing system. Turning off auto-play videos on Facebook can be done with a few short, easy steps.


  1. Head to Facebook. Open your web browser, type in on the address bar, and hit Enter. You will be directed to Facebook’s sign-in page.
  2. Log into your account. Do this by clicking the e-mail and password boxes separately. Once you’ve select the appropriate box, type in your information.
    • When you are finished, click “Log in” to access your account.
  3. Click the small arrow point down. On your account home page, look to the upper-right side of the screen to find a small arrow pointing down; click on this.
  4. Access the Settings menu. A drop-down list will appear below the arrow. Go towards the bottom, and you will see the “Settings” button; click on this.
  5. Open the settings for videos. On the left side of the new screen will be a list of submenus. The very last one is “Videos”; click it to open settings for videos.
  6. Disable auto-play videos. A new screen will load with one option that says “Auto-Play Videos” with a simple drop-down menu to the right. Simply click on the menu and click “No” to disable auto-play videos.
    • Your settings will save automatically, and you can now browse Facebook without those videos slowing your system down.

  2. Tap More.
  3. Scroll down and tap Settings
  4. Tap Videos and select Autoplay.
  5. Toggle Autoplay to off.
