An annoying feature on Facebook where videos on your wall start blaring away automatically can be a problem, especially when you’re cruising your wall posts in, say a meeting or other fairly quiet place!  This feature can be easily disabled though.   Follow these steps to stop videos from auto-playing with sound on your Facebook wall.  

Note: Video auto-play will still work, the sound will just be auto-muted…  click the speaker icon in the lower corner of the video to activate sound for that video.  The screen shots below are based on the Android version of the Facebook app, iOS may vary slightly, but should still have the same settings available.

Step 1:

  • Launch the Facebook App on your mobile device
  • Click the ‘3 bars‘ to enter the settings menu
