Are you tired of seeing ads on your Facebook app? You’re not alone!

Many Android users find these ads intrusive and distracting. But don’t worry, in this article, we will guide you on how to turn off Facebook ads on your Android device.

Step 1: Open the Facebook App

First, locate the Facebook app on your Android device and tap on it to open the app. The app’s icon typically looks like a lowercase ‘f’ in blue and white.

Step 2: Access the Settings Menu

Once you have opened the Facebook app, look for the menu button. It is usually represented by three horizontal lines or dots in the top-right or bottom-right corner of the screen. Tap on it to access the settings menu.

Step 3: Navigate to Ads Preferences

In the settings menu, scroll down until you find an option called “Settings & Privacy.” Tap on it to expand the submenu. Next, tap on “Settings” from this submenu.

Note: If you are using an older version of the Facebook app, you may need to look for an option called “Account Settings” instead of “Settings & Privacy.”

Option 1: Ad Preferences

In the settings menu, scroll down until you find an option labeled “Ad Preferences.” Tap on it to proceed.

Option 2: Ads

If you don’t see an option called “Ad Preferences,” look for an option named “Ads” instead. Tap on it to continue.

Step 4: Manage Ad Settings

In this section, you will see various options related to ad personalization and preferences. To turn off Facebook ads, follow the options below:

  • Ad Personalization: Tap on this option to manage the data used to show you ads. You can disable personalization by toggling off the switch.
  • Hide Ad Topics: If you find certain ad topics irrelevant or offensive, tap on this option to hide those topics from your ad preferences.
  • Ad Settings: This option allows you to manage your preferences for ads shown on apps and websites outside of Facebook. Tap on it to access further settings.

Note: Keep in mind that disabling ad personalization may not completely stop all ads from appearing on your Facebook app. However, it will make the ads less Targeted and relevant to your interests.

Step 5: Save Changes

After making any desired changes to your ad settings, don’t forget to save them. Look for a “Save” or “Done” button in the settings menu and tap on it to confirm your changes.

Congratulations! You have successfully turned off Facebook ads on your Android device. Enjoy a more personalized and ad-free browsing experience!
