    For computers:

    Go to your options drop-down menu in the top right.
    Click "Settings"
    Select the "Videos" link on the left.
    Turn the "Auto-Play Videos" from "ON" to "OFF"

    For Phones and tablet apps:
    You can adjust your auto-play settings to On, Wi-Fi only or Off. If auto-play is On, the data used depends on the amount of time you spend watching a video. If you scroll past an auto-play video in News Feed, your phone will use less data than if you stop to watch it for a longer period of time. If auto-play is set to Wi-Fi only, no data will be used.

    To adjust your auto-play settings:


    Open the Facebook app
    Tap your phone's menu button
    Tap Settings
    Scroll down and tap Video Auto-play
    Choose an option

    iPhone and iPad
