How to turn Facebook’s photo syncing off

How can I unsync the photos from my phone with Facebook? I recently saw this question pop up in my News Feed and I thought it would be a good question to answer. Here are the steps to remove Facebook photo syncing from your iPhone or Android (taken from Facebook’s Help Center):


  1. Open the Facebook app and tap the top-left main menu
  2. Scroll to the bottom and select Account > App Settings > Sync Photos
  3. Choose Don’t sync my photos

iPhone or iPad

  1. Open the Facebook app and go to your timeline
  2. Tap Photos
  3. At the bottom, tap Synced
  4. Tap the gear icon and choose Turn off Photo Sync
  5. Tap Don’t sync my photos
