Turn off Facebook Video Auto-Play

Facebook now auto-plays every video in your timeline.

That includes a hidden background file to silence the audio.

It is annoying enough on desktops, but all the while your Facebook app is open on your mobile device, this feature is draining significant battery power as well.

Save yourself lots of time searching for a solution.

Here it is:

From your profile, go to

  • Settings (down arrow in top right corner) >
  • Videos >
  • Auto-Play Videos >
  • Off
