Has your mobile data usage gone up recently?Posted: May 28, 2014 | |
Since Facebook introduced video autoplay recently, you may have noticed a slight increase in your mobile data usage.
If you’re a regular Facebooker, you’ve no doubt noticed that videos on your news feed are now playing automatically. While this enhances your Facebook experience, it can also cause a slight increase in your mobile data usage. Although you can’t turn these videos off completely, you can set it up so they only autoplay when you’re connected to WiFi.
Simply follow these easy instructions to disable video autoplay on desktop, iOS and Android. You will need to complete the steps for EACH device you own. If you have recently updated your iOS to Version 7.1.1 you will be able to turn off the autoplay altogether.
