    Good day everyone!
    I am sick of Facebook displaying(not posting) my photos. Everytime i google this question, i get the same answer

    > Android
    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

    But, those rules don't apply to S7. First, the menu in the app is in the top-right menu, Sencond, their is an option in App Settings but their is not "Sync Photos and sub-sequently there s no "Don't sync my photos"

    Any advice?? Thank you.

    I would like to know how to do this with my husband's S5. We found "App Settings" but there is nothing about syncing (or not syncing) photos I don't do FB so I'm not terribly familiar with FB settings.

    The only way I found was to deny the FB app permission to access my device's storage. When I did that, it quit showing my photos and asking if I wanted to post them.

    Or you could dump Facebook..... It's more and more intrusive. I finally broke my FB habit and deactivated my account.

    But it is better to use your web browser to access Facebook because the FB app is a resource hog. I don't know if that will help your problem with it auto uploading your photos however, but worth a try.

    I'm with you Westiemom! But, I never started down the FB road to begin with. Hopefully DH will tire of this FB phase soon. Till then I'll see if I can deny permission to access storage. Thanks Dave.

    Dear Facebook sinks it's fangs into your device even if you only use the browser. Case and point: my wife used my phone to call one of her friends (they're not in my phone contacts - only dialed the number) and somehow that friend is now on my Facebook page as a "friend suggestion". If I didn't allow FB any permissions and not even using the app, how did they get that my device contacted this person to suggest adding them to my FB friends?

    Well that's why I dumped it. But my point was that if you're going to use it, using your browser to access it doesn't drain your battery like the app does.

    Yes, I'm tired of FB's fangs. Don't miss it.

    How exactly is it displaying your photos? I don't see that on my Facebook app. Could you post a screenshot and jusy block off the stuff you don't want seen?

    How to stop Facebook from displaying your photos? Most advice doesn't work on S7-screenshot_20160916-114755.jpg

    As you can see , the photos show up there, where it says: share a recent photo

    Are you using the S7?

    S7 Edge. Should be nearly identical. Although now I remember that I'm signed up for Facebook beta so it may have something to do with it.

    Have the same problem there is no "PhotoSync" option anymore.

    These fixes the issues : )
    -go to your phone "Settings" (ie: NOT facebook's app's setting itself)
    - pick "Applications"
    - scroll down to click "Facebook"
    - pick "Permissions"
    - pick "Storage" - swipe right hand side button to "turn off"
