Then start the Facebook app, then once inside press the icon : you will be shown a menu in which you will have to go to Settings and Privacy> Settings> Videos and photos. Once this is done, tap on the Auto Play item and put the check mark where you read Never play videos automatically. Nothing simpler, isn't it?

If, on the other hand, you are acting as a PC, go to the official Facebook site and access your profile. Now press the icon in the upper right corner ▼ and then click on the Settings item in the drop-down menu that opens. At this point click on the Video item (left sidebar) and select the word Disable, which you find next to the Automatic video playback item. Again, the procedure wasn't particularly complex, was it?
