How to disable Facebook’s facial recognition feature

050125-M-5191K-075Not everyone is crazy about Facebook’s new facial recognition feature. To disable the feature, follow these steps:

  1. Log into Facebook.
  2. In the top-right corner click on Account and go to Privacy Settings.
  3. Click “customize settings” (toward the bottom-middle of your screen).
  4. Look for the section titled “Things others share.” The permission you accidentally gave Facebook to use facial recognition suggestions is located in the “Suggest photos of me to friends” option. Click on “Edit Settings” to change that.
  5. Choose “Disabled” and then push “OK.”
