As we know, Facebook is one of the most popular social networking platform with over 2 billion daily active users.


However, Nowadays most of the people prefer and love to use Facebook’s latest fast-loaded mobile app rather than a website because it is more responsive, easy to use, offers some nice features and adds various other functionalities which makes it the best.

But if you are one who is concerned about data usage and auto-playing videos on facebook app then this guide is especially for you.

Instead of wasting the data packs on loading unwanted facebook videos, I recommend you to change the setting in order to disable facebook auto-play videos completely.

So,¬†without any further ado, let’s get started.
