YouTube has a similar option, blocking and stopping them from posting links in comments or just turning off comments on YouTube, but of course those are vague comparisons.

It's true that tagging is fun, until your friends start to tagging your name on too many photos and videos unrelated. Just look at the photos you've been tagged in on Facebook and realize it's time to quit.

Or just for their photos or video messages to reach your wall for your friends to see, it starts to get pretty annoying. Sure, you can deselect yourself, but in cases like these, to prevent it is always better than constantly deselecting.

Unfortunately there is no way to stop tag activity on Facebook, however there are ways to controllare how your tagged photos and videos will appear on your Facebook.

No more tags on Facebook photos

Among the options to do or to avoid in order not to be tagged in Facebook photos and don't let all your friends tag you in photos and events, just follow these simple steps:

  • To start the process, you must first enter your Facebook account, for this you need to go to the official website and add your data.
  • Log into your account and click on » Privacy settings »Top left and then on the drop-down menu» Account «.

On the next page or window, you will be able to observe various configuration settings to customize your privacy information on Facebook.


That includes who can post on your wall, who can see your photos and albums, which of your friends can see your personal information, and so on.

  • Now you need to select the "Customize settings" option.
  • On the next page, scroll down and look in the section » Things shared by others «.

You'll see different settings to know who can see your wall posts and who can tag you in both photos and videos.

  • Click on the drop-down menu and select » custom «.

A small pop-up window will open where you can allow a group of friends to tag you in the photos.

If you want nobody on Facebook to tag you in your photos and other images, select the option » Io »As an option.

Disable auto-tagging in your profile

Another way to avoid or avoid being tagged in Facebook photos is disable automatic tags on your Facebook profile. This can prevent people from automatically tagging you and therefore having to worry about removing the tag.

You will only receive one request for approval of a tag on a photo, you will need to go to the photo and approve or disapprove it. This will give you some privacy, but not all of it, as it won't delete the photo.

  • To get started, you must first access the settings » privacy »(At the top right of your Facebook profile, next to the" Home "drop-down option).
  • Scroll down to the edit option » History and tagging »And disable all tagging permissions.

This means that when a photo of you is tagged, you have to give your permission before that the tag appears and is shown to all your friends. This custom setting to make it more private.

You must remember that the photo tagged it will not be deleted, you can delete it from your timeline but not from the wall of the person who uploaded it.

Only by asking them to remove it or by reporting it to Facebook will they remove it. To disable » Facial recognition »Or suggestions, select the option» Nobody «.

What's wrong with the labeling?

A wrong photo? In some other scenarios they might include a photo which was taken in a place you shouldn't have been. Or just a photo that isn't to your liking.

You shouldn't be the one to choose the photos to upload to the Internet, and possibly put a Facebook profile where anyone can download them and use them somehow?

Photo tags, unless it's a public event in you have given permission to take your photo, could cause problems of any kind.
