In a very secretive move, Facebook has slowly introduced a new facial recognition feature, that finds pictures with your face and suggests to your friends that they tag you in it. If you’d rather this feature be turned off, here’s how to disable it.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather Facebook not go around telling everyone to tag me in their pictures, especially if they’re of the less flattering variety. While it’s pretty annoying that Facebook turned this on without telling us, it’s pretty easy to turn off. Just head to Account > Privacy Settings and click on customise Settings. Scroll down to the “Suggest Photos of Me to Friends” setting, hit “Edit Settings” and disable it. From now on, your friends will have to manually tag you instead of Facebook automatically suggesting they do it. Check out the video above to see how to do it.
