How do I stop videos from playing automatically in my Feed on Facebook?

You can change your video autoplay settings at any time.
To change this setting on your Android phone:
  1. In the top right of Facebook, tap menu.
  2. Scroll down and tap Settings & Privacy then tap Settings.
  3. Scroll down to Preferences and tap Media.
  4. Scroll down to Autoplay, then tap to select from the following options:
    • On Mobile Data and Wi-Fi: Videos will always autoplay on this selection.
    • On Wi-Fi Connections Only: Videos will only autoplay when your device is connected to Wi-Fi with this selection.
    • Never Autoplay Videos: Videos will never autoplay with this selection.
To help us improve the way you see videos on Facebook, you can give feedback on videos playing automatically in your Feed.
Note: If you don't see the Autoplay settings on your Android phone, try updating the Facebook app.
